Maybe the place to look for information about translating to readable
HLL, is YEAR-2000 transformation tools. Some of these attempt to
translate from old, unsupported assmebler to high-level langauge code.
If I remember correctly SAPIENS (an Israeli company) has some tools
for this (something called falcon, if I remember correclty). I also
recall a company called SML - from the UK. I also heard of a tool
called Fermat, but don't have any clues about who makes it.
Hope you find this strange idea useful.
