I made my solution 35+ years ago, and the source might still exist on one of the approx 100 eight-inch floppy disks, with a proprietary formatting and a proprietary file system, that I'm still keeping in a box in my basement. The manufacturer went bankrupt in 1992. I think that we were programming in Pascal at that time, so I would have to obtain a Pascal compiler to verify the code.

The cost&effort of recovering the source code (if it is available on one of the floppies, and the floppy is still readable) would be much larger than the cost of developing it anew. I could do it; you could do it yourself. The solution is really tiny, but the devil is in the details. Once the details are right, you'll say: Well, of course that's how it should be.

I might give it a try (maybe 35+ years of coding experience will make it appear simpler), but I haven't got the time right now. Go ahead yourself! Smile | :)
