The little grey cells holding this info are rather dusty, but they're
telling me that back when I used VMS (early '80s) CONVERT/FDL was the
appropriate tool to deal with issues like this.

It took some noodling around the HELP pages and some experiments, but I
eventually got the file I was dealing with converted.  You might want
to throw ANALYZE/FDL at the file first to see how it really is set up.
