the PM - Diskette - Formatter


A new Programm from the forge of KLARKUS !
















PMFORMAT, the PM - Diskette - Formatter Page 2



INTRODUCTION
------------


This program serves for the formatting of diskettes under
PM (Presentation Manager) of OS/2. The user interaction is
handled completely in a small window and is very clearly
arranged therefore. The big amount of command line switches
of the original format program is obsolete for this reason.

The program generates the volume id automatically for disks
formatted first time; it is preserved on disks whichwere
formatted before. In addition to that the userwill receive
a warning if the disk, which is to be formatted, contains
data already.

We, Klaus Breining and Markus Noller, distribute common
written software under the name KLARKUS. Although all these
programs were written as a hobby in our spare time, is it my
attempt, being a professional software engineer, to release
only full functional and thoroughly tested programs to the
public.

USAGE
-----


The usage of this program is rather simple. You only have to
enter the name of the new diskette and to select the drive
and the kind of disk (High Density - HD oder Double Density
- DD). This could be done in any sequence; the entry of a
diskette label is optional and not necassary. A push to the
FORMAT-button starts the formatting. During the formatting
the button becomes "insensitive"; it is impossible to push
it again. When the format is complete this is signalled with
a bell tone; the FORMAT-button is selectable again then. If
the diskette is already formatted, this is shown to the user
An additional window is opened; it shows the volume-id and
the diskette name if present. You can decide now to proceed
with your format or abort it. The popup of this window is
connected to a bell tone also. This is for the case you
changed to a full screen session right after pushing the
button; so you won't wait for the end of the format for a
very long time.

If there occurres an error during format, the program will
show it in an additional popup window too. The error number
supplied with the text could be used for reference in the
HELP command on the command line.

Is the format aborted by an error or by user in the system-
menu, there will be no problems according the drive (Locking
or something like that), but the diskette is inoperable and
should be formatted again before use as a storage medium.




START
-----


The program is started by simply typing "PMFORMAT" on the
command line. Parameters are neither necessary nor recog-
nized.

The program can be inserted very easily into a group of the
PM program starter. It can be invoked from there with a
single "Double-Klick".

REGISTRATION
============


This program is released as SHAREWARE. You recognize that
when You see the registration request popping up right after
the program start. The only difference between the shareware
version and the registered version is this window; it
appears only in the shareware version. The whole rest of
the program is exactly the same. This is the case because
I hate cripple-ware. So I am not willing to release crippled
versions (not at the moment at least) of our programs.

Nevertheless, I ask everybody who is willing to continue the
use of this program in the future to send the filled regist-
ration form back to me. We are very interested if there are
enough OS/2 users who are willing to pay some money for
"Shareware made in Germany".

Of course, we are wanting only VERY LITTLE MONEY (not worth
talking about). So the INTERNATIONAL version (there exists a
German version as well) can be received for the prize of:

$ 5.-- (in words: fife)
-----------------------

as bank note in Your letter. This offer is valid for all
"normal users" (ask for company licenses). You get the
registered version on a diskette of your choice 5 1/4 inch
or 3 1/2 inch and a note, if there is an upgrade because of
a bug (we don't hope so) or because of user requests.

Once more: Please register this program. You show interest
on our hobbiists work and we will shurely write some more
programs for OS/2 then, what can be very useful for You then
(We have some more interesting ideas on further projects.)

According: Registration PM-Format


Yes, I want to register PMFORMAT. I know that this program is
released without any kind of guarantee what is caused by its
concept (shareware) and its very low prize. I enclose the
registration fee of $5 to this letter as a bank note.


I would like to receive the software on a

o 5 1/4 inch diskette
o 3 1/2 inch diskette.

Please send it to the following address:
