No.  I don't have a link.  It was developed before I had internet 
access, bootstrapped using Bill Waite's STAGE2 macro processor.  It has 
the lovely feature that its macro arguments *always* had matched 
parentheses, no matter how long they were and so I used it in effect to 
parse Lisp and generate VAX assembler.

I used the bootstrap version to build the version I actually used.

Much of the source code seems to have disappeared over the years.
