TI-58/59 Jive Turkey Number Guessing Game

I've had a lot of visitors but few comments! Let me hear from you! Email me at: Gene!

This program and it's SR-52 twin first appeared in the PPX Exchange near Thanksgiving 1978 and is probably still copyrighted by them (if they care anymore). The game resembles the classic game of High-Low, but only up to a point. The program sometimes "Jives" you or lies to you in its responses.
Instructions: To play the game, you try to guess a number that the program has generated. It then tells you whether your guess is too high or too low or correct. However, at the beginning of the game, you have to enter a probability of "truth", a number between 0 and 100. This entry determines how often the program "jives" you. For example, if you enter 75, the program gives you truthful answers 75% of the time and false answers 25% of the time.

1) Press SBR CLR to initalize the program.
2) Enter the probability of truth and press A.
3) Enter a seed number as an integer between 0 and 199017 and press B.
4) Enter your guess (0 to 100) and press E.
5) If your guess is too high, the program displays 1.
6) If your guess is too low, the program displays -1.
7) If your guess is correct, the display flashes the correct answer.
8) Press D to show how many guesses you used. Press CE first if the display is still flashing.
9) To play another game, go to step 1.

Example:
```Enter    Press    Display     Comments
SBR CLR     0.        Initialize
80         A       80.        The probability of truth
956        B        0.        Seed entered
50         E        1.        High
25         E        1.        High
15         E       -1.        Low
20         E        1.        High
17         E       -1.        Low
18         E       -1.        Low
19         E        1.        High?
19         E       -1.        Low
19         E       -1.        Low
22         E       22.        Correct! Flashing Display
CE D      10.        Number of guesses```
