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.
