The spec was never released by IBM as far as I know. But I see the Open
Watcom project (actually one guy only - Lawrence Haynes) reverse
engineered the IPFC compiler and rewrote a clean-room implementation so
they can compile their documentation under OS/2, Windows, DOS and Linux.
The new compiler is called 'wipfc' and the source code is available with
Open Watcom project.

I'm downloading it now. So with no effort, I get a linux IPF Compiler. Cool!
