NAME ^

TAEB - the Tactical Amulet Extraction Bot (for NetHack)

DESCRIPTION ^

TAEB is a framework for programmatically playing NetHack (http://nethack.org). This framework is useful for, among other things, writing autonomous NetHack bots, or providing unconventional interfaces to NetHack for humans.

Once installed, run the taeb script to run TAEB::AI::Demo. This simplistic AI is provided so that TAEB does something out of the box, and for didactic purposes. You should select a more robust TAEB AI (such as TAEB::AI::Behavioral) to run.
