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:

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

Example

Here is an example file:

*example.jft;
-This is line one;
-This is line two;
-;
-The line above this one is blank;
!;
