You might have to re-write it from scratch. It's still copyrighted by
the university. I'd say write it in c++ to dispel all doubt that you
didn't copy. Then true and groff will be c++.
There's still software in the tree that uses the four clause license.
But because of the advertising clause, you can't really talk about it or
else you have to list it.
