CPM+ with WINCPC and "format"
« on: 16:26, 12 October 10 »
hello, I here "CPMPlus_v1.0.zip" with four dsk.
I would like to format it using the command "format" in "CPM +" a diskette with the "WINCPC".

But the command "format" I do not think the "CPM +", I find no "format.com".

Where is the "format.com"?

disckit2 on "side 4".
or disckit3 on "side 2"?

boot into cpm (side 1 for cpm+)
side 4 for cpm2.2

at A> prompt
type "disckit2" and press return/enter (for cpm2.2)

for cpm3.1, insert side 2 I think and type "disckit3"

when it's run you can use the f keys to choose what you want to do.

if you want the cpm boot tracks I think you may need to use cpm's sysgen.
and for this you will need side 1 or side 4 for the source.

in cpm type "dir" to list the files.
.com are executables.
