Rogue 5.2 was released on or around 4/11/1982 (internal date on executable). It was probably developed on a VAX 11/750 running BSD/Unix 4.1c.

Despite the name of the archive, this is a binary distribution of rogue 5.2 with some supporting files for rog-o-matic that may have been intended for rogue 5.3. Its likely how rogue 5.2 was distributed as it includes the parts for customizing it to a site and building the final executable.

I seem to have lost the original archive file with dates, this reconstructs what was there. I believe it was originally obtained from the anonymous ftp site at the now defunct ftp://uxc.cso.uiuc.edu/games/rogue site in the very early 1990s. It should be a relatively unmodified source, how it came to be there I do not know.
This is a best guess at what the original source looked like on 5/19/82.

Rogue 5.2 was released on our about 04/11/1982
The primary goal of this release was to produce a version of Rogue 5.2 as close to the original as possible. The primary differences between this release and the original is the addition of an operating system independent save game mechanism to replace the raw memory dump method used by the original (which won't work reliably on any modern Unix). But functionally the game should be identical.
