  JPLDIS is a public domain information management system written in Fortran by JPL. A re-implementation of it in assembly language called DBASE II[Footnote] is selling like hotcakes at $800 a pop. We can get the Fortran source from COSMIC, convert it to something, and have a product. Somebody needs to get the sucker and see what we're in for here. It's a lot of FORTRAN, but if it will compile right through Microsoft FORTRAN, we may have a fast product.
