% Game_Of_Nim_UC_errors.m - John Friendly - 10/28/2013

% Description: This program will allow a user to play against

% the computer in a game of Nim.

% Usage: Game_Of_Nim_UC_errors;

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

% variables used

% numbOfBears          current number of Bears

% playerBears          number of Bears selected by the computer or the player

% compSmartMode         true = smart mode, false = stupid mode

% turn             true = computer turn, false = player turn

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

% SETUP:

% determine the initial number of bearcats (10 <= numbOfBears <= 100), who

% will go first(turn = true -> computer), and whether the computer will

% play in smart mode (compSmartMode = true -> smart mode)

% seed the random number generator with the current time

rng('shuffle');

% generate the random number of Bears between 10 and 100
