[DatabaseFile [TypeString [PluralTypeString]]]
This manual page documents briefly the animals
text-based animal guessing game.
You think of an animal, and hit enter when you have one. Then the game asks you
yes-or-no questions that successively narrows down your animal. Eventually,
the game will make a guess, and ask you if it was right. If it was wrong, you
win! You then teach it about your animal.
