Got a console serial port on the CP/M system?  You should be 
able to use a program like Kermit to suck up the files.  
Probably log a file list, edit the file list to only have 
source files, and then you can get that into Kermit to make 
the CP/M system type out the files, and Kermit will log them 
to individual files.  I've never done this, but I think 
kermit was specially designed to make this easy to do.

I'm guessing a few other terminal programs have the same 
sort of capability to run scripts to send commands to a 
foreign OS and log the result.
