Command Line (Shortcut) Options

Individual games can be run from the command line, skipping the menu screen.  To run a game, start Pretty Good Solitaire from the command line with GOODSOL followed by the name of the game. For example, the command line "GOODSOL01 klondike" will immediately start the game Klondike.  (Statistics will go to the player the program was set to the previous time the program was run).
