Inform 6.41 for Amiga (22nd July 2022)

This program is a compiler of Infocom format (also called "Z-machine")
story files, as well as "Glulx" story files:
Copyright (c) Graham Nelson 1993 - 2022.

Usage: "inform [commands...] <file1> [<file2>]"

<file1> is the Inform source file of the game to be compiled. <file2>,
if given, overrides the filename Inform would normally use for the
compiled output. Try "inform -h1" for file-naming conventions.

One or more words can be supplied as "commands". These may be:

-switches a list of compiler switches, 1 or 2 letter
(see "inform -h2" for the full range)

+dir set Include_Path to this directory
++dir add this directory to Include_Path
+PATH=dir change the PATH to this directory
++PATH=dir add this directory to the PATH

$... one of the following configuration commands:
$list list current settings
$?SETTING explain briefly what SETTING is for
$SETTING=number change SETTING to given number
$!TRACEOPT set trace option TRACEOPT
(or $!TRACEOPT=2, 3, etc for more tracing;
$! by itself to list all trace options)
$#SYMBOL=number define SYMBOL as a constant in the story

(filename) read in a list of commands (in the format above)
from this "setup file"

Alternate command-line formats for the above:
--help (this page)
--path PATH=dir (set path)
--addpath PATH=dir (add to path)
--list (list current settings)
--helpopt SETTING (explain setting)
--opt SETTING=number (change setting)
--helptrace (list all trace options)
--trace TRACEOPT (set trace option)
--trace TRACEOPT=num (more tracing)
--define SYMBOL=number (define constant)
--config filename (read setup file)

For example: "inform -dexs curses".
