Overview

This programme proposes carrot repartitions for the German family game "Hase & Igel" dating from the 1970es. (You have to reach the finish without too many carrots - fuel - left. Larger step take more carrots in a quadratic manner so the last moves need to be optimised. This programme considers up to three stops ie up to four steps.)

When prompted, input fields to finish ("Felder") and number of carrots ("Kar.") held. Memory "maxKa" needs to be filled with 9 manually (or, 19 of you are going for second place only, etc.)

Text lines are either append - space - o - space or append - plus

The carrot subroutine is deliberately completely unrolled to speed up
