25 Year Old Coding Project Review

25 years ago I was in college doing my A-Levels. Now I’m a teacher teaching A-Levels. I recently found my old programming project from my A-Level computer science course. Let’s review it as if it was done by one of my own students.

Is it any good? Does it match up to the quality they produce today? Was it really better back in the old days of DOS and Windows 3.1 where we had to use Pascal rather than Python?

Let’s find out in this relaxed ramble through the code I wrote and the documentation I had to write to accompany it.
