OPTIONS FILE
     The file ~/.larnopts may be used to set a few options for larn.  A sequence of words termi-
     nated by whitespace is used to specify options.

	  Word				Meaning

     bold-objects		   Select bold display of objects.
     inverse-objects		   Select inverse video display of objects.
     no-introduction		   Do not display intro message.
     enable-checkpointing	   Turn on periodic checkpointing.
     no-beep			   Disable beeping of the terminal.
     male			   Choose your sex to be a man.
     female			   Choose your sex to be a woman.
     name: ``your name''	   Choose your playing name.
     monster: ``monst name''	   Choose a name for a monster.
     savefile: ``save-file-name''  Define what the savegame filename will be.

     Your name and monster names must be enclosed in double quotation marks and may be up to 34
     characters long.  Longer names are truncated.  Anything enclosed in quotation marks is con-
     sidered one word, and must be separated from other words by whitespace.

SPECIAL NOTES
     When dropping gold, if you type '*' as your amount, all your gold gets dropped.  In general,
     typing in '*' means all of what you are interested in.  This is true when visiting the bank,
     or when contributing at altars.

     You can get out of the store, trading post, school, or home by hitting <esc>.

     When casting a spell, if you need a list of spells you can cast, type D as the first letter
     of your spell.  The available list of spells will be shown, after which you may enter the
     spell code.  This only works on the 1st letter of the spell you are casting.

FILES
     /var/games/larn.scores  Score file.
     ~/.larnopts	     Options file.
