Useless trivia: my port of Python 1.5 onto the Psion series 5 was done 
shortly after I had ported nethack onto the same device. Most of the work 
porting nethack to a new device is providing new screen output functions. 
The Python port simply reused some of the nethack code.

Anyway, extracting the output from Nethack at a suitably high level isn't a 
hard task. It is pretty well structured in that area.

int month(char *p){return(124864/((p[0]+p[1]-p[2]&0x1f)+1)%12)["\5\x8\3"
"\6\7\xb\1\x9\xa\2\0\4"];} // Who said my code was obscure?
