inform (interactive fiction compiler)

Inform 6 is version 6 of Inform, an interactive fiction programming
language created by Graham Nelson. Inform 6 made its debut on April 30th,
1996, and it continues to be one of the most popular IF development
systems even after the introduction of Inform 7 in 2006. Inform 6,
like all other versions of Inform, compiles to code not only for the
Z-machine, the same virtual machine used by Infocom, but also for the
more powerful and flexible virtual machine called Glulx.

This is a command-line compiler for the Inform 6 language. For a graphical
Inform 7 compiler, see gnome-inform7. Inform 6 and 7 are completely
different languages, so it's not redundant to install both.

To get started writing interactive fiction with Inform, everything you
need is installed in /usr/doc/inform-$VERSION:

inform_beginners_guide.pdf - Read this first.
manual/index.html - The Designer's Manual. Everything you need to know.
tutorials/*.inf - Tutorials in Inform source code format.
demos/*.inf - Source to sample games.

Related packages: you'll want a Z-Code interpreter to try out your creations.
Install one of: fizmo, frotz, zoom.
