I had always been told it was first written in some proprietary DEC list processing language, and only later converted to FORTRAN.  Is this the original conversion?

Did anybody suggest the following fix to put a blank in the carriage control position??


998     FORMAT(1H ,20A5)

Hello,

Some time ago, an old version of the Adventure game was found.
According to Woods, the March 11 files are the originals from Crowther.

Maybe this is of come historical interest, and could be part of the SIMH
games kits.  This version builds without modifications with the DEC F40
compiler.  I tested this in ITS.  Credits to the person who provided
build instructions on YouTube!

Unfortunately, there's a problem: All lines output by the program are
missing the very first character.  I tried to look at the file input
code, and the SPEAK subroutine, but I'm not well versed in FORTRAN IV.
