TP 6.0 TPU to 7.0 without original source?

Has anyone yet figured out a way to get Turbo Pascal 6.0 TPU to work
with/convert to 7.0 without having the original source?

If not, any advice as to where I can find a copy of 6.0?

TIA for any information.

Ken.

In practice, no. As so many questions (that's what a FAQ is all
about) this already is covered in the inevitable

   No, there is no conversion or decompilation utility available for such
an effort - the major releases' of TP/BP have all had incompatible TPU
formats.  Without the source .PAS file, you're out of luck (unless you
wish to try to "reengineer" a new source).
