possibility of customizing the status line in ZILF 0.7?

Yeah I was just wondering if I can customize the status line read out on ZILF 0.7 instead of

LOCATION SCORE MOVES

like classic Infocom games, but to a more like

LOCATION SCORE: 0/250 (0 being the current score, 250 being the max fixed score).

You can do this, on version 4 and up, by replacing the UPDATE-STATUS-LINE routine defined in parser.zil. Something like this:

<SET REDEFINE T>
<ROUTINE UPDATE-STATUS-LINE ("AUX" WIDTH)
    <SCREEN 1>
    <HLIGHT ,H-INVERSE>
    <FAKE-ERASE>
    <TELL !\ >
    <COND (,HERE-LIT <TELL D ,HERE>)
	  (ELSE <TELL %,DARKNESS-STATUS-TEXT>)>
    <SET WIDTH <LOWCORE SCRH>>
    <CURSET 1 <- .WIDTH 15>>
    <TELL "Score: " N ,SCORE "/250">
    <SCREEN 0>
    <HLIGHT ,H-NORMAL>>

Put that somewhere after your <INSERT-FILE “parser”> line so it’ll replace the library function.

On version 3, you can’t really customize the status line, because it’s drawn by the interpreter, but you can use to make it show up as hours/minutes instead of score/turns.
