The falcon's eye project has been dead for many years already.

rather try: Vulture's Eye ( ). It forked the falcon's source and has more than doubled the graphic support already, uses the latest version of nethack, fixed many many bugs and has an ongoing open collaboration in it's development.

also Vulture's adds : Vulture's Claw, so you can play Slash'EM with this interface aswell.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise
