Do you have github account... or sourceforge, I think a few other people
may find it useful...

My dream is some day to convert this:

to freepascal or GoLang, however I don't really feel like doing it all
manually, would rather automate a lot of it.

AFAIK it's plain C, been a while since I looked at it.

There is more C code I'd like to convert too, and I'm sure others would be
interested in your source... But it is up to you, I don't know if you just
don't feel like making it public on github or sourceforge
