     larn — exploring the caverns of Larn

     larn [-r] [-H number] [-n] [-h] [-o optsfile]

     Larn is a fantasy games in which your child has contracted a strange dis‐
     ease, and none of your home remedies seem to have any effect.  You set
     out to find a remedy in a limited amount of time, and to collect gold
     along the way of course!

     The options are:

     -r	   The -r option restores a checkpointed game after it has died.

     -H	   The -H option sets the hardness of the game.

     -n	   The -n option suppresses the welcome message at start up, putting
	   you directly into the game.

     -h	   The -h option prints the command line options.

     -o	   The -o option specifies a different options file than ~/.larnopts.

     These are the movement commands:

     h move to the left	       H run left		    . stay here
     j move down	       J run down		    Z teleport yourself
     k move up		       K run up			    c cast a spell
     l move to the right       L run right		    r read a scroll
     y move northwest	       Y run northwest		    q quaff a potion
     u move northeast	       U run northeast		    W wear armor
     b move southwest	       B run southwest		    T take off armor
     n move southeast	       N run southeast		    w wield a weapon
     ^ identify a trap	       g give present pack weight   P give tax status
     d drop an item	       i inventory your pockets	    Q quit the game
     v print program version   S save the game		    D list all items found
     ? this help screen	       A create diagnostic file	    e eat something
			       (wizards only)

     The file ~/.larnopts may be used to set a few options for Larn. A
     sequence of words terminated by whitespace is used to specify options.

	  Word			      Meaning

     bold-objects		 Select bold display of objects.
     inverse-objects		 Select inverse video display of objects.
     no-introduction		 Do not display intro message.
     enable-checkpointing	 Turn on periodic checkpointing.
     no-beep			 Disable beeping of the terminal.
     male			 Choose your sex to be a man.
     female			 Choose your sex to be a woman.
     name: "your name"		 Choose your playing name.
     monster: "monst name"	 Choose a name for a monster.
     savefile: "save-file-name"	 Define what the savegame filename will be.

     Your name and monster names must be enclosed in double quotation marks
     and may be up to 34 characters long.  Longer names are truncated.	Any‐
     thing enclosed in quotation marks is considered one word, and must be
     separated from other words by whitespace.

     When dropping gold, if you type '*' as your amount, all your gold gets
     dropped.  In general, typing in '*' means all of what you are interested
     in.  This is true when visiting the bank, or when contributing at altars.

     You can get out of the store, trading post, school, or home by hitting

     When casting a spell, if you need a list of spells you can cast, type D
     as the first letter of your spell.	 The available list of spells will be
     shown, after which you may enter the spell code.  This only works on the
     1st letter of the spell you are casting.
