The *.ins files are used by Halloween Harry to store instruction text for the ordering pages. All the .ins files are stored in order.bnk.

File format

The file consists of a series of commands, one per line. The first character of each line control what type of command to use. Each line must end with a semicolon and CRLF. Multiple commands cannot appear on the same line.

Here are all known commands:

Set the current font to filename.jft
Text to display on the current line, then move to the next line.
End of text, always the last line in the file


Here is an example file:

-This is line one;
-This is line two;
-The line above this one is blank;
