To further add to the confusion, . . .
Several authors of such programs would use the competing products to
generate sample disks to analyze. I had a couple of disks from a
"Goupil". But the guy's handwriting was such that I thought that he had
written "Groupil". It was most of a year before I corrected the spelling.
Hmmm. A couple of programs support "Groupil"; where did they get the
disk from? The guy that sent them to me SAID that he hadn't sent any to
anybody else. There was also somebody who made an I.N.W. disk based on my
L.N.W. In addition, there are a very small number of formats that I put
in specifically for the developers of the machines, some of which never
made it to commercial market! Not a DELIBERATE Mountweazel, but, . . .
Since WD didn't CARE about the head number field, all of the disks
formatted by XenoCopy had the correct content in the field, "poached"
formats might not always have all of the correct weirdities.
