This package provides the jzip Z-Code interpreter required to run Infocom or Inform-generated text adventures, although the format can be used for more than games. It is based on the zip interpreter sources and adapted by John D. Holder <jholder@frii.com>. The ckifzs program, for checking the basic structure of save files against the QUETZAL standard, is also included, as is the jzexe program to create a standalone executable by gluing a Z-code file to jzip.
