Waddle, a library of WAD utilities

Waddle is a library for reading the contents of WAD files.

It can be used to parse WAD files into Haskell data types. Additionaly, WAD data can be exported to JavaScript code.

In the folder "visualizer", there is a HTML5/Canvas viewer for the exported data.

Waddle has been tested with DOOM.WAD, DOOM2.WAD, PLUTONIA.WAD and TNT.WAD from Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II and Final DOOM.

To try it out, make sure you have a WAD file available and do the following:

tar xzvf waddle-X.Y.Z.W.tar.gz cd waddle-X.Y.Z.W cabal sandbox init cabal install mkdir visualize/data cabal run DOOM.WAD visualize/data

Then fire up a capable web browser and open visualize/waddle.html.

Happy WAD hacking! Martin
