==== Description: ====
Desknet is a program that creates a network of 30 workstations, each of which
has access to a portion of a common projected display.  A single computer
drives the entire network.

Designed for use in school classrooms, the workstations offer practice
exercises for addition, subtraction multiplication, division, and keyboarding.
 Additionally, with the appropriate data files, students can check their
written work from math textbooks on a problem by problem basis.  A rudimentary
word processing program allows students to enter, correct, and print hard
copies of written essays.

The graphics platform is SDL2; the networking is standard USB; the recommended
keyboards use the Logitech unifying receivers.

This project is successor to the existing Classnet project.

==== Other Software Required: ====
SDL2  zlib
SDL2-devel  zlib
SDL2_ttf  zlib
SDL2_ttf-devel  zlib
Bitstream Vera  ???

==== Other Comments: ====
Not sure what to make of check item 5.

Regarding item 6:  To use the Check Your Work routine, the user will need to
make an answer file for the text book she is using.  The distribution comes
with dummy files; no copyrighted or derivative material is included.  While I
think the creation of the answer file falls within fair use, that question
reverts to the user who creates it.
