Well, TenDRA a.k.a. ANDF, is an intermediate format. So as such you
can certainly "decompile it", sort of, and have access to something
in ASCII. But this is far less readable than the original C code,
not to mention C++.
What ANDF buys you here, is the portability checks of your source
code. Once you've ANDF-ized your code against a given abstracted ABI,
then you have a fair level of confidence in the portability of your

This should be easy. Once you have the program in a tree format of
some sort that reflects the Pascal structure, spiting out ANDF code
should be straightforward.
You can gain experience from the C producer which is available at the
following URL, kindly mentioned by Ben Sloman a couple of weeks ago:
