 Micro Focus Cobol ISAM files - accessing data???

I need to access the data in Micro Focus Cobol ISAM files.  Does anybody
know where I can get a shareware library or utility to do this??

I'm a student at York College. Recently for my COBOL class I designed a
program which let's a user uptate and view an ISAM file using Micro Focus

Is there any reason why you could not post this program again (or
in the first place) as plain Ascii text?  It would be directly
readable and reach a wider audience that way.
