   1: My endless quest for diversions caused me to write this
   2: Mastermind game knockoff. Maybe should be Monkmind?... <p>
   3: 
   4: Search revealed only one implementation, [68803|here], so I thought
   5: I'd offer this alternative. <p>

    Nice, clean, and fun. How about a "quit" command?

    # ... print "\nGuess (Q to quit): "; chomp($inp = <>); last if $inp =~ /^[qQ]/; # ...

    Just a thought ...
