Help: Exporting to C

I read somewhere that you can export a project as C code, making it really easy to get it running on basically anything. I happen to need this functionality. How do I do this?

Does this thread help?

a little, but I’m still not 100% sure how to actually make it export to a c file? e.g. how to run inform as a command line thing and how to make it output from there

I am definitely not the ideal person to give detailed help with that; I’m just aware that it’s possible and have thought “gee, I should try that sometime” (without having got to the stage of following through on that impulse).

But here is a “how to use Inform from the command-line” thread that contains a project announcement and some discussion.
