Nethack Utilities

General Disclamer

Granted, this is not much of a web page. (And don't expect fancy graphics, anyway :-)

It's just an unique entry point mainly to access the applets that I usually need during my Nethack games.


The applet pages have been validated through the W3C validator and are conforming to HTML 4.01.
All programs have been tested with a recent and older versions of Firefox and IE and with Safari.
(Frankly, I don't care any more about problems with IE, and you can always get Firefox for free ;-)
Please note: If the applets initially don't react, please apply the browser's reload button and retry.
(The newest versions of Firefox and IE do not show this malfunction any more.)
