I don't actually _have_ THINK C, only THINK Pascal. I was extrapolating from
Bill St. Clair's message, which said:

I think I had misread this as "...C could make Think Pascal _libraries_...".
If this was the case, then what I originally said (i.e. use that library, as
it's indistinguishable from an MPW object file) would hold. However, I checked
a friend's copy of THINK C 4.0 today, and it is incapable of generating this
form of library. He has promised to bring the manual from his 5.0 update, and
I will see if there's any difference. I apologize for the confusion.

OTOH, I _did_ confirm that THINK Pascal 4.0 can use THINK C libraries (but
projects), from which it can create MPW-compatible object files. So, in a
there already is a tool which comes close to the desired "Think C -> MPW
converter" -- it's called THINK Pascal. Clearly, THINK has the technology to
create a conversion utility, although it's not clear to me that it's a simple
