RFS: int-fiction-ifp - Interactive Fiction Plugin engine -- a collection of game intepreters
this is the last 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
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.
Description: Interactive Fiction Plugin engine -- a collection of game intepreters
IFP, the Interactive Fiction Plugin engine, implements a single IF
game-playing program that can run a number of popular IF game formats. It
is based on the Glk user interface library and will thus run on both
X and a terminal.
IFP directly handles compressed, gzipped, or bzipped game files, and game
files, compressed or otherwise, contained in zip, tar, or cpio archives.
It also handles URL references to game files, compressed game files,
or game archives.
The dependency graph of the packages is crudely
