NAME

       jzip - execute Infocom v1-5 and Inform v1-5 & v8 game files

SYNOPSIS

       jzip [ options ] z-file-name

DESCRIPTION

       jzip invokes the Z-code Interpreter.

       See  the Makefile contained in the source distribution to compile jzip.
       Machine specific options are listed at the beginning.

REQUIREMENTS

       jzip will run under most (if not all) flavors of Unix,  including  AIX,
       Solaris,  SunOS, HP/UX, Linux, Free/NetBSD, IRIX, NeXT Mach, DEC OSF/1,
       and others.

INSTALLATION

       To install jzip, edit the Makefile with  the  options  appropriate  for
       your system, then issue the command make.

       It  is  probably  a  good  idea  to  install  the  jzip  executable  in
       /usr/games, and the man page in /usr/local/man/man6.

EDITING

       JZip now supports arrowkey editing in UNIX.

       Up/Down
              selects the previous / next command in history

       Left/Right
              moves the cursor over the line.

       Backspace
              deletes

       Typing inserts under the cursor

OPTIONS

       -l n   lines in display

       -c n   columns in display

       -r n   text right margin (default = 0)

       -t n   text top margin (default = 0)

       -v     display version information

       -m     monochrome mode

       -s n   zmachine  strict  level,  from  0  (none),   1   (report   once,
              recommended) to 3.

ENVIRONMENT

       jzip  looks  for the environment variable INFOCOM_PATH and will use the
       path found there to look for the story file specified  on  the  command
       line if the story file cannot be found in the current directory.

CREDITS

       jzip is written and maintained by John Holder (jholder@frii.com), based
       on the ZIP v2.0 sources by Mark Howell and Olaf ’Olsen’ Barthel.

       The most recent version of jzip can be ftp’ed from ftp.gmd.de,  in  the
       /if-archive/infocom/interpreters/zip/ directory.
