PatchHack is a patch that can be applied to NetHack. It includes a number of simple patches written by authors around the world, fixing some bugs and making simple enhancements to NetHack.


To download PatchHack, go here. Currently it is only avaiable in the form of a patch to the NetHack source code, so you must download that code as well. If you'd like to provide a binary package, I would be happy to upload it. However, one key feature of PatchHack is that it is easy to control which features are included at compile time, so no binary package is likely to make everyone happy.


To find out about PatchHack development, go to the project homepage. Any contributions are quite welcome - the easiest way to contribute is to take existing NetHack patches and convert them for use with PatchHack (preferably with the author's consent).
