RFS: glulxe - an adventure game interpreter


this is the fifth of my seven sponsoring requests for packages related
to Interactive Fiction and the Glk library specification.  I'm posting
them separately for clarity and CCing the corresponding ITP for each
package. Apologies for the number of emails.  Any comments on the packages
are welcome.

Glk is a cross-platform, portable user interface library specification.
It can handle simple graphics but does best at text, which can contain
formatting and hyper-links. It is targeted primarily for interactive fiction 
(text adventure) systems.

The packages more or less depend on one another. See the end of this
mail for a crude dependency graph. All of the packages use cdbs and
libtool, and most use automake as well.

Name: glulxe
ITP: #338476

Description: an adventure game interpreter
 Glulxe is an interpreter for the Glulx virtual machine designed for
 playing interactive fiction (adventure games), similar to the Infocom's
 Z-machine standard. It uses the Glk library for I/O and is thus highly
 portable and will run on both X and a terminal.
