   P.S. "awayscore" IS defined as an integer, in case anyone is going to
ask me if I've defined it correctly. "scanblack" returns a string, so I
don't know how to return a number when required ("read(line,awayscore)"
not working was un-expected - I guess maybe you can't read a number from
a string, only from standard input/text file).
