The files within this directory are the Zork specific files from the ```100068.tap``` tape image file within the ```/tots/recovered/vol7``` directory of the [ToTS collection](https://archivesspace.mit.edu/repositories/2/resources/1265). Most files are written in the MDL programming language and were originally created on a PDP-10 timeshare computer running the ITS operating system.
The files were extracted from the tape image using the [itstar program](https://github.com/PDP-10/itstar). The filenames have been adapted to Unix conventions, as per the itstar translation. The original filename syntax would be like, ```LCF; ACT1 37```, for example. All files have been placed into this artificial zork directory for organizational purposes.
