Nethack Utilities

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.
Note: The applets have been tested with Firefox only. Use at own risk.

Source Code (experimental)

The algorithm in the C source code creates orthogonal partitioned random maps. It can be used to construct new basic types of generic maps for Nethack, Sewers and Towns (in addition to the existing Rooms/Corridors, Mines, and Maze types). The parameters of the algorithm have been developed in a way so that layouts are generated that look natural while still preserving enough variety. (Note: The code is polymorphic; if executed as 'town' the Town generation will be active, otherwise the Sewers generation.)
