NFrotz is a Z-Machine interpreter. The Z-machine is a virtual machine designed by Infocom to run all of their text adventures. It went through multiple revisions during the lifetime of the company, and two further revisions (V7 and V8) were created by Graham Nelson after the company's demise. The specification is now quite well documented; this version of Frotz supports version 1.1. This version of Frotz fully supports all these versions of the Z-Machine except for version 6. Version 6 is semi-supported by displaying the outlines of V6 graphics with the picture number in the bottom-right corner. NFrotz is a merged port of the original Unix Frotz, incorporating extensions made by the WinFrotz port. The primary visible difference between NFrotz and ordinary Frotz is support for UTF-8 terminals and some awareness of iFiction-based metadata if present.
