        There are two programs to help you make your own levels: jumpnbump-pack
        and jumpnbump-unpack.
               jumpnbump-pack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat <file1> <file2> <file3>  ...
               or  you  can just put all the files in a dir, cd to that dir and
               jumpnbump-pack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat *
               and it will put all the files in  the  current  dir  inside  the
               packfile.  Don’t  try  things  like  jumpnbump-pack -o stuff.dat
               ../file.c because it will add ../file.c as the filename  in  the
               packfile, which won’t work.
               jumpnbump-unpack level.dat
               will unpack it in the current directory.
               With  jumpnbump-gobpack  you  can  convert .gob files (which are
               sprites,  described  in  /usr/share/doc/jumpnbump/gob.txt)  into
               .pcx  files  which  you can edit with The Gimp for example, then
               convert back to a .gob and use it in your own level.
               jumpnbump-gobpack -u font menu.pcx
               will unpack font.gob using the color palette from  menu.pcx  and
               write  the  files  font.pcx font.txt. The other gob files should
               use level.pcx for the correct palette.
               jumpnbump-gobpack font
               will generate font.gob from font.pcx and the  specifications  in
               font.txt. The .pcx files should be resaved with another program,
               as they are not packed and are thus very large.
