Hi Reid,

   If you want something in C, try predict.    If BASIC is more to your 
liking, then try G3RUH's plan13 program. 
Both come with source code.  Predict is GPL.  Plan13 comes with G3RUH's 
writeup, which includes an
excellent explanation of what the program does and how it does it.

predict is at

plan13 is at

   Both will run on computers with minimal CPU resources.
