JACL project is an interpreted computer language originally designed for creating interactive fiction. The JACL package now includes two interpreters: jacl, the original console-based interpreter and cgijacl, a combined interpreter and HTTP server.
In addition to interactive fiction, a wide variety of other turn-based games can be created using cgijacl. By using HTML to create a graphical user interface, these games can be played using a standard web browser. As the interpreter does not require a separate web server to run it can be easily installed on most PCs allowing games to be played locally or across a network.
I would like to thank to Andreas Matthias for contributing the webjacl code and Niels Haedecke for his work on translation and internationalization.

· The interpreter was changed to open game files in binary mode to avoid cross platform compatibility issues caused by differing end-of-line character sequences.
