The Lite Format package is defined as containing all the material listed in
the PACKING.LST text file. If any files listed in the PACKING.LST text
file, or the PACKING.LST file itself, are missing, then the package is not

complete package suitable for distribution.

The Lite Format package - including all related program files and
documentation files - CANNOT be modified in any way and must be distributed
as a complete package, without exception. The PACKING.LST text file
contains a list of all files that are part of the Lite Format package.

Small additions to the package, such as the introductory or installation
batch files used by many shareware disk vendors, are acceptable.

No price or other compensation may be charged for the Lite Format package.
A distribution fee may be charged for the cost of the diskette, shipping
and handling, as long as the total (per disk) does not exceed US$8.00 in
the U.S. and Canada, or US$12.00 internationally.

offer, without a written agreement from Falk Data Systems.

ASP Approved Vendors who wish to distribute the Lite Format package as

Vendors (non-ASP Vendor Members) who wish to distribute the Lite Format
package as part of a collection (such as PsL's MegaDisk set, or a CD-ROM

Others (non-ASP Members) must contact us in advance to ensure that you
have the most current version of the software.

You cannot use a Disk-of-the-Month distribution to use up your inventory
of old (out of date) disks. Only current versions may be shipped as
Disk-of-the-Month disks.

The PRINTED User's Guide may not be reproduced in whole or in part, using
any means, without the written permission of Falk Data Systems. In other
words, the disk-based documentation may not be distributed in PRINTED
(hardcopy) form.

The Lite Format package cannot be "rented" or "leased" to others.

You may not list any of our products in advertisements, catalogs, or other
literature which describes our products as "FREE SOFTWARE". Shareware is
"Try-Before-You-Buy" software, it is not free.

Falk Data Systems prohibits the distribution of outdated versions of the
Lite Format package, without written permission from Falk Data Systems. If
the version you have is over twelve (12) months old, please contact us to
ensure that you have the most current version. This version was released
in March, 1991.

Vendor Update Program:
----------------------

Most non-ASP vendors have standard procedures for acquiring new files.
They get them from other vendors, BBSs, etc. Most authors cannot afford to
mail disks to hundreds (perhaps thousands) of vendors. However, some
vendors prefer to obtain programs directly from the authors. If you would
like to obtain programs directly from us, automatically, then please help
us to cover the cost.

If you are NOT an ASP Approved Vendor (in good standing), but you would
still like to receive automatic updates directly from us, then please take
advantage of our Vendor Update Program. Under this program you can receive
updates for an entire year for only $10 per program (this helps to offset
our costs).

To receive updates, simply send us a letter with your name, company name,
mailing address, the name of the person we should contact (such as your
disk librarian), the program (or programs) for which you would like to
receive updates, and a check or money order for $10 for each program
(Countries outside of North America please add an additional $10 per
program). Payment in U.S. funds drawn on a U.S. bank only please.

The Vendor Update Program is available for the following products (as of
March, 1991):

The Programmer's Productivity Pack
The Programmer's Productivity Pack Lite
Easy Format: The Fun Floppy Disk Formatter
Lite Format: The Simple Floppy Disk Formatter
Peruse: An ASCII and Binary File Reader

All vendors participating in our Vendor Update Program will automatically
receive any NEW programs which we may release while their Vendor Update
Program is in effect.

NOTE: ASP Associate Members automatically receive free updates and do not
need to apply for the Vendor Update Program. This is yet another
advantage to being an ASP Associate Member.

The Vendor Update Program is only intended to help us cover our expenses in
those cases where a vendor desires to obtain the program directly from us.
If you have other standard ways to obtain programs, then you may prefer not
to use our Vendor Update Program.

Please refer to DESCRIBE.DOC for our mailing address and phone number.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
