is there some way to back into the source?


One would hope the Source Change Management (SCM) has the original production version maintained in a source repository.

I generally review data in SYSROUTINE [SYSROUTINES] and SYSPARMS, from which to reconstruct a routine definition. I am unsure if the Generate SQL DDL (QSQGNDDL) API might not give the ability to generate the CREATE PROCEDURE statement from the existing definition for the External routine;;; Ah, verified that is so [and the iNav DB\SQL feature should give that capability, via some feature that is implemented using that API]:
