     Simple Win32 API Tic Tac Toe game. Has a total of 24 strategies/blocks incorporated into one function called smart() that works on defense as well as offense. It checks to see what moves have been made and makes it's move accordingly. Better than playing a human for the computer never sleeps. ;) Good example of writing your own functions to perform tasks there are no built in functions for and getting different return values from your function to act accordingly. The boxes are numbered from left to right with the top left box being one. The top row is one to three, middle four to six and bottom seven to nine. Push the button that's number corresponds to the box that you would like to choose. Good example of subclassing child controls and using the template resource editor to create and display dialog boxes. One or two players.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
