Debian packages for Zarf's glulxe interpreter

The glulxe interpreter is the reference implementation of Zarf's glulxe virtual machine standard. It was specifically designed for running Interactive Fiction (a.k.a. Text Adventures). Version 0.4.3 of glulxe is available from Zarf's homepage here or from the Interactive Fiction Archive here.

Please note that I am not an official Debian developer. These packages are thrown together in a rather random way and will propably eat your dog and blow up your house. However, on my machine, they work. Your mileage may vary.

These packages already contain a patch for glkterm to make them work on a 64 bit machine.

Feedback is welcome (send your rants to
