FormatQM Version 1.72 Distribution Notes
February, 1992 Revision
FormatQM is a program to format and verify batches of diskettes in any
standard DOS format. Multiple drive support and "no hands" operation
are FormatQM's distinguishing characteristics.
If you upload these files to a BBS, please use a file name of FORMQ172.
Thus, if you use SEA's ARC program, the file name would be FORMQ172.ARC.
FormatQM 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.
