IF guide for non-IF software - an IFDB Poll

I'm looking for IF with puzzles that are solved by literacy in a non-IF software tool. The story should communicate an experience that the user might have a hard time experiencing themselves without the IF providing a guiding narrative for the non-IF tool.

I'll throw in extra bonus points if the game actually calls the non-IF tool in the code through a shell call or a shared library, rather than re-implementing the tool in an IF-specific language or simply using canned responses that are hard-coded into the story.
