JZIP(1)		       John's Z-code Interpreter Program	       JZIP(1)

NAME
       jzip - execute Infocom v1-5 and Inform v1-8 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/lo-
       cal/bin,	and the	man page in /usr/local/man/man1.

EDITING
       John Menichelli(menichel@pixi.com) has graced  us  with	editing	 code.
       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

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.  Set
       INFOCOM_PATH with setenv.

CREDITS
       jzip is written and maintained by John Holder (jholder@nmsu.edu), based
       on the ZIP v2.0 sources by Mark Howell and Olaf 'Olsen' Barthel.

       Mark  Phillips  and  Andrew  S.	Benham contributed portability and bug
       fixes of	various	sorts.	This manpage was originally written by Michael
       S. Phillips.

BUGS
       Control characters are still passed to the interpreter (for now).

TODO
       Keystrokes to handle editing/reptition of previous commands

       DJGPP  compiles	for  DOS.   (Note:  There is a DOS version, just not a
       DJGPP DOS version.)

       Handling	of CTRL	characters under Unix

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