dungeon crawl game - common files
NetHack is a wonderfully silly, yet quite addictive, Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure game. You play a character from one of many classes (such as wizard, ranger, or tourist), fighting your way down to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor (try saying THAT one backwards!) for your god. On the way, you might encounter a quantum mechanic or two, or perhaps King Arthur, or - if you're REALLY lucky - the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.
You should install a front-end for NetHack if you wish to play the game. Each of them includes the original non-graphical version, and they can all be installed at the same time:
- nethack-console: no graphics, just plain NetHack; - nethack-x11 : original X11/Athena-based graphical version; - nethack-qt : Qt-based graphical version; - nethack-lisp : Lisp window version.
The various graphical front-ends for NetHack all share a large number of files in common. This package contains the graphics, dungeon levels, and utilities common to all NetHack front-ends.
It also provides a few utilities such as recover, for retrieving auto-save files in case of a power failure, and dgn_comp and lev_comp, two utilities for making your own NetHack levels and dungeons. The "recover" utility will be run every time the system boots, if there are any auto-save files available.
