"Transporting the dead, so you don't have to."

A tool for Nethack that allows people to exchange bones files.

Previously, some websites offered bonesfiles exchange, but the system was fairly awkward. Hearse automates this.

Hearse just figures out what version and build of Nethack you're using, and sends your bones files to server somewhere - and downloads you a bunch of bones files from other players.

The only problem with Hearse is the bones files incompatibility - bones files are highly version/build dependent. Hearse won't upload or download files that are incompatible with your version or the versions server knows of. This may be a problem for users of some binaries (particularly on UNIX platforms).
