Ztools (The Infocom Toolkit)

An essential set of Z-machine tools for interpreter authors, experienced Inform programmers, and Z-code hackers, originally written by Mark Howell, and now maintained by Matthew Russotto.

The toolkit consists of TXD, a Z-code disassembler, and Infodump, a story file table parser, together with utilities for verifying and stripping story files, converting Infocom's IBM MCGA graphics files to GIF, and extracting story files from bootable DOS discs.

The current version is 7/3.1 (981107).
