Thanks.  If you really want it to be useful beyond your own environment,
you might want to consider the following enhancements:

 1. Add a makefile
 2. Lowercase the filenames (to match the #include statements; VMS
    isn't case-sensitive, but *n*x is)
 3. Pack up the source into a single (possibly compressed) archive.
 4. Echo a usage statement instead of dumping core when the expected
    environment variables are not set.
 5. Add a README file.
