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.
