I have Inform 7 running on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. It seems to compile fine.

I would like to experiment with Inform 6. If I understand correctly, the underlying compiler for I7 is I6.

Inform 7 in Raspbian ulitmately compiles with /usr/local/libexec/inform6, a binary file that appears to be Inform 6.33N binary.

Can I use that executable file to compile Inform 6 source code?

Thank you,
v/r

Note: Inform 7 on Raspberry Pi appears to be a script that ultimately uses the libexec file with which to compile.

Thanks, fos1

Yes, it should just be a compiled version of https://github.com/DavidKinder/Inform6 .

Thank you for the input and resource.

I am going to give it a try. I was unable to successfully install the Inform 6 files directly but the Inform 7 install appears to work properly.

PS. I will report back with the results as I can.

If you want to play with Inform6 on anything running some sort of Unix, your best approach is with the Inform6 for Unix package. All the messiness has been taken care of. It lives at https://gitlab.com/DavidGriffith/inform6unix now. I just finished changing it over from Github and tagged the 6.34/6.12.2 release.
