Under the heading 'The complete DELTA System' in the page 
http://delta-intkey.com/www/programs.htm, there's a link 'DELTA zipfile', 
which has the URL http://delta-intkey.com/win64/delta.zip. I downloaded 
that file, and verified that it does include the complete release. There 
are 18 '.exe' files and 44 '.bat' files in the 'delta' folder, plus 
another 6 '.bat' files in the 'sample' subfolder. All of the '.bat' files 
are updated or new since the December 2000 release.

The source code hasn't been updated since Eric Zurcher worked on it. I 
think you have that source code.

If I release updated versions of the Fortran programs (which I intend to 
do - but don't hold your breath), I'll update the 'changes' file.
