1.Overview
PySyCache is an educational software:
for young children (4 to 7 years old)
the targeted users of PySyCache are young kids, but they may be older (i.e. users which aren't used to computers) or
disabled persons (PySyCache used in their rehabilitation)
which main purpose is helping them in using the mouse like:
mouse movements
clicks (with left, right or middle buttons)
drag and drop.
PySyCache was thought for an optimal use:
interface adapted to young people: the mouse cannot leave the zone of the screen, impossible to click by inadvertency
at the time of an activity on a button,
adaptation of the levels: for each activity, there are three levels of difficulty (means, easy, difficult) and two modes of
plays (free or directed),
On the principal menu, the activities suggested go in a logical order of use of the mouse: displacement, click, doubleclick then drag'n drop.
Pysycache doesn't require a powerful computer (1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM), and can be used:
at home with your children
at school.
PySyCache has been created by Vincent DEROO in 2005 ; it
has been tranlated in several languages (english, german,
italian, spanish, portuguese, dutch, finnish) ; 2.0 and 2.1
versions were downloaded 4 000 times by users who are
located in thirty countries.
PySyCache is part of some curriculum (In Spain or Quebec).
Several articles had been written about PySyCache.
License:
PySyCache is licensed under the GPL V2 licence.
The current documentation is under the GFDL
On PySyCache Web Site (http://www.pysycache.org/) you could find :
some documentation for each activity (rules, FAQ, themes detail)
last version of the software
additional themes link (http://themes.pysycache.free.fr/)
some users testimonials
User manual PySyCache 3.0
2.Installation
Requirements
To run PySyCache, you need python (http://www.python.org/) and pygame (http://www.pygame.org/).
PySyCache is known to work on FreeBSD, Linux, Macintosh and Windows operating systems. : Linux (Debian, Mandriva,
SuSE, Ubuntu), Macintosh (G3) et Windows XP.
Installation of the required libraries
Linux platform: python and pygame belong to all the recent distributions.
platform Macintosh: the installation of python is easy, but that of pygame more complicated. However, if one follows
the instructions of the site www.pygame.org, the installation is held correctly and functions of the first blow. Binary
copies of files for Macinstosh are available on the site of PySyCache. However, the installation of these libraries is
useless if you install PySyCache from the pysycache.app file.
Windows platform: the installeurs python and pygame are available since the sites of these libraries or on the site of
PySyCache where a copy is available. However, the installation of these libraries is useless if you install PySyCache
starting from the provided setup file : indeed, this one integrates already the libraries python and pygame.
PySyCache's installation
Linux platform:
either using script.install.sh present in the file which you downloaded
either using your manager of packages (PySyCache packages are available for various distributions: Debian,
Mandriva, Slackware).
platform Macintosh:
either using script.install.sh present in the file which you downloaded.
either using the file pysycache.app
Windows platform:
either using the file install beats.beats present in the file which you downloaded
either using the setup that you downloaded.
FreeBSD platform: a bearing was carried out (see the heading remote loading of the site of pysycache). Installation of
additional topics.
Additional themes installation
For reasons of size and licence, PySyCache is delivered with some themes by defect, but it is possible:
to create your own topics: in the repertory Doc. of pysycache, you find scripts-fu for gimp and the files allowing to
create its masks, its parts of puzzle
to install additional topics provided by PySyCache: it is then enough to decompress the file which you downloaded in
the repertory of PySyCache (the tree structure is created automatically).
The additional themes are subjected to a licence of the Creative type commons and often do not authorize a commercial use of
it.
User manual PySyCache 3.0
3.PySyCache'sconfiguration
PySyCache is very flexible of use: for example, it is possible for you to create your own topics and to store them in your
personal repertory.
PySyCache manages its users in two ways:
Independent users: in the case of a user on a machine or several users on the same machine, but with various accounts
Gathered Users: in the case of several users on the same machine with the same account. The interest of this
regrouping is to provide various levels of difficulty for various users without having to connect/disconnect from the
machine.
The choice of this management of the users makes that with the launching of PySyCache, its identity should be chosen:
The configuration of PySyCache is regulated by launching PySyCache with the option “- admin”. It is done automatically
during the first launching of PySyCache:
You must then specify:
how users are managed,
the directory where the themes and the configuration file of users are stored (if the users are managed by PySyCache)
the directory of the scores.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
0. PREAMBLE
The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document "free" in the sense of
freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either
commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for
their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.
This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same
sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.
We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free
documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this
License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is
published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.
1. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS
This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying
it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in
duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The "Document", below, refers to any such manual or work. Any
member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as "you". You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the
work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.
A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or
with modifications and/or translated into another language.
A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the
relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document's overall subject (or to related matters) and contains
nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a
Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the
subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them.
The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the
notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary
then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does
not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none.
The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice
that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover
Text may be at most 25 words.
A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is
available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for
images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is
suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A
copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or
User manual PySyCache 3.0
discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any
substantial amount of text. A copy that is not "Transparent" is called "Opaque".
Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input
format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed
for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include
proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD
and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some
word processors for output purposes only.
The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the
material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, "Title
Page" means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work's title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.
A section "Entitled XYZ" means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in
parentheses following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a specific section name mentioned
below, such as "Acknowledgements", "Dedications", "Endorsements", or "History".) To "Preserve the Title" of such a section
when you modify the Document means that it remains a section "Entitled XYZ" according to this definition.
The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document.
These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming
warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no effect on the meaning of this
License.
2. VERBATIM COPYING
You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this
License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies,
and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or
control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in
exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.
You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies.
3. COPYING IN QUANTITY
If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than
100, and the Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and
legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers
must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all
words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes
limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim
copying in other respects.
If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages.
If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machinereadable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location
from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete
Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps,
when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at
the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or
retailers) of that edition to the public.
It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of
copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.
User manual PySyCache 3.0
4. MODIFICATIONS
You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided
that you release the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified Version filling the role of the Document,
thus licensing distribution and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must
do these things in the Modified Version:
A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous
versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a
previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
B. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modifications in the
Modified Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has
fewer than five), unless they release you from this requirement.
C. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modified Version, as the publisher.
D. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
E. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications adjacent to the other copyright notices.
F. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public permission to use the Modified Version
under the terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
G. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document's license
notice.
H. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
I. Preserve the section Entitled "History", Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors,
and publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled "History" in the Document,
create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing
the Modified Version as stated in the previous sentence.
J. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and
likewise the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed in the
"History" section. You may omit a network location for a work that was published at least four years before the Document
itself, or if the original publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
K. For any section Entitled "Acknowledgements" or "Dedications", Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the
section all the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein.
L. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and in their titles. Section numbers or the
equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
M. Delete any section Entitled "Endorsements". Such a section may not be included in the Modified Version.
N. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled "Endorsements" or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
O. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.
If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no
material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this,
add their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version's license notice. These titles must be distinct from any
other section titles.
You may add a section Entitled "Endorsements", provided it contains nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by
various parties--for example, statements of peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the
authoritative definition of a standard.
You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to
the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modified Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text
may be added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already includes a cover text for the
same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add
another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.
The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission to use their names for publicity for or
to assert or imply endorsement of any Modified Version.
User manual PySyCache 3.0
5. COMBINING DOCUMENTS
You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License, under the terms defined in section 4 above
for modified versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original
documents, unmodified, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its license notice, and that you
preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.
The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced
with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but different contents, make the title of each
such section unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author or publisher of that section if
known, or else a unique number. Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license
notice of the combined work.
In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled "History" in the various original documents, forming one section
Entitled "History"; likewise combine any sections Entitled "Acknowledgements", and any sections Entitled "Dedications".
You must delete all sections Entitled "Endorsements."
6. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS
You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released under this License, and replace the
individual copies of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that
you follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.
You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individually under this License, provided you
insert a copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim
copying of that document.
7. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS
A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent documents or works, in or on a volume
of a storage or distribution medium, is called an "aggregate" if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit
the legal rights of the compilation's users beyond what the individual works permit. When the Document is included in an
aggregate, this License does not apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the
Document.
If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one
half of the entire aggregate, the Document's Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the
aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form. Otherwise they must appear on printed
covers that bracket the whole aggregate.
8. TRANSLATION
Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section
4. Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a
translation of this License, and all the license notices in the Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also
include the original English version of this License and the original versions of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a
disagreement between the translation and the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will
prevail.
If a section in the Document is Entitled "Acknowledgements", "Dedications", or "History", the requirement (section 4) to
Preserve its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual title.

9. TERMINATION
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly provided for under this License. Any
other attempt to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document is void, and will automatically terminate your rights
under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
10. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE
The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/.
Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Document specifies that a particular numbered
version of this License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of
that specified version or of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the
Document does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by
the Free Software Foundation.
How to use this License for your documents
To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of the License in the document and put the following
copyright and license notices just after the title page:
Copyright (c) YEAR YOUR NAME.
Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2
or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover
Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU
Free Documentation License".
If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts, replace the "with...Texts." line with this:
with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the
Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST.
If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to
suit the situation.
If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we recommend releasing these examples in parallel under
your choice of free software license, such as the GNU General Public License, to permit their use in free software.
