It won't take much effort at all out side of the following areas.

1. Using non-Progress commands e.g. system calls for printing or using
C subroutines.

2. Some of the screen handlingj functions such as put which have
"changed" since V4.

These usually occur in tightly defined areas and so are easy to track
down. Everything else will probably run straight out of the box.
