I had to do some conversion of a [ughhhhhh] FORTRAN program written for
the PDP-11/73 [Micro-RSX] and VAX [VMS]. Ran across the RADIX-50
encoding technique (what a pain).
Basically, Radix-50 is a special character data representation in which
up to three characters are encoded and packed into sixteen bits. The
Radix-50 character set is a [lame] subset of ASCII.
So I hacked out this TurboC routine. It seems to work fine, but I have
made no attempt to optimize it or completely test it out.
