I pulled copies from Clem's recommendation,

https://minnie.tuhs.org/cgi-bin/utree.pl?file=V8/usr/src/cmd look for the
diction and style directories, which should be close.

I got them to compile with modern C.  Then I found that FSF has their own
rewrites.https://www.gnu.org/software/diction/  It's only three years old,
not 30. :)

Just FYI.

Sorry, I should have mentioned those too.  I thought you were interested in
something closer to the historical version.   Truth be known,  I have Gnu's
version 1.11 installed on my Mac (as part of brew), however but I
think they are 13 years old not 3 :-)

My goal was to find something to catch simple errors in IETF RFC's.  And
yeah, a typo on 13 vs 3 :)

I've run it over a few documents, not sure if it's worth adding an
xml/markdown filter to handle input "better" or not.
