CON->FORMAT Version 1.07 Distribution Notes

August, 1990

CON->FORMAT is a program to format and verify diskettes "in the background".
That is, you may format diskettes concurrently with other activities.
CON->FORMAT is a "pop-up" resident program which is activated by a
user-defined keystroke combination or "hot key".

If you upload these files to a BBS, please use a file name of CNFMT107.
Thus, if you use SEA's ARC program, the file name would be CNFMT107.ARC.

CON->FORMAT IS NOT FREE SOFTWARE, but rather, user-supported "Shareware".
That is, if you find it useful, you must register - more details are
given in the documentation file.
