Curious thread
It seems to have had a relative posted around 2005
http://sci4um.com/about13124.html
In pursuing the matter in the 35 posts associated with the user, one will find the message:
"Of course I post code as notice of KBH development and not to convey right of use to others..."
Here is some nonsense at the "site".

http://www.kbhscape.com/plot.htm
And here is the menuless homepage.

Well, I am just a "crank". But it really disturbs me when the conscientious professionals in this newsgroup have to deal with threads like this. When I participated here long ago (severely flamed), there were many more active professional posters and some very competent nonprofessional posters.
Let me take a moment to thank them  both past and present.
Being ignorant of "KBH code" seems to be like not knowing who constructed the regular polygon with 65537 sides,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Gustav_Hermes
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructible_polygon#Compass_and_straightedge_constructions
https://oeis.org/A003401
Of course, knowing about Hermes could be useful when impressing one's friends with math trivia.
KBH code? Not too sure. But, I have my suspicions.
