Ummm, thanks Vernon but I wasn't actually looking for a de-compiler.  My 
message was in response to a query regarding how one can protect the source 
of software from customers.  I made this comment in January but thanks for 
the response!

There is a company called, I think, Source Retrieval, that sells this
service/product. I believe they make sure that it's legal-as in bellyup
vendors. I don't have with me their address-should be at Midrange Computing
or NEWS/400.
