Zax is a Z-code interpreter written in Java by Matt Kimmel. It was originally released in 1997, and was recently re-released under the MIT License. "Zax" stands for "Z-code Application eXecutor" and is also a really good Scrabble word.

Features

  • Supports versions 1-5 and 7-8 of the Z-machine.
  • "Nearly" Z-machine specification 1.0 compliant.
  • Written as a Java application, not an applet (and as such is distinguished from Zplet).
  • Should run on any platform that supports both the Java Runtime Environment version 5 (aka JRE 1.5) or higher and Sun's AWT user interface toolkit.
