The README in ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/unix/games/moria/vms/ reads:
- vms48.tar.Z is a compressed tar file containing the original VMS/Pascal Moria sources. These sources are the basis for all of the other moria versions in this archive.
- vms50.tar.Z is a compressed tar file containing the VMS/Pascal Moria UB 5.0 sources developed at the University Buffalo. This is generally considered the latest VMS Moria version.
These are Unix tape archives, probably not the original archive format for VMS Moria. When I downloaded them, the timestamps were in 1989, and the timestamps on 4.8 were actually newer than the timestamps on 5.0. --Kernigh 05:48, 7 Aug 2006 (CEST)
