Advanced Rogue 5.8

Advanced Rogue (through v7.7) was developed by a group of employees at AT&T Bell Labs between 1984 and 1986. Michael Morgan and Ken Dalka appear to be among the semi-anonymous authors. AT&T distributed Advanced Rogue through the AT&T Toolchest for a time.

Advanced Rogue 5.8 is based on the Rogue 3.6 source code with some additions from Super-Rogue. The source code was found floating on the internet. (a slightly enhanced version was also found, I have dubbed that version 5.8e and will be ported seperately).
