Well, I can't find the source :-(. It was a long time ago and I have no idea
where it went, it was just proof of concept stuff. I did find the hacked C

IIRC, we used the C code to figure out what calls to make in the Cobol
program, then we played with the LINKEDIT a bit to make it work.
Let me know if you're interested,
