NetHack 3.3.0 source release.
Step 2: unpack.
NetHack is shipped in a single archive created with tar and then
shrunk with gzip. To unpack under Unix, the following commands
should be executed in an empty directory:
gzcat nethack-330.tgz > nethack-3.3.0.tar
tar xf nethack-3.3.0.tar
The gzip package (containing gzip, gunzip, and gzcat) may be obtained from the
Free Software Foundation. A version
of tar is also available from the same site.
Step 3: build.
See the file README in the top level directory unpacked in Step 2 for
build instructions for the various operating systems.
