        I pulled out a disk I had sitting here which I totally forgot I had.
It's the program 'Uniform', version 2.02, from Micro Solutions and is
copywrited 1986. This is the PC version, and I hadn't tried it before
because it's been quite a long time since I had a PC with the 5-1/4" drives.
Well, I installed it onto the MS-DOS 2.11 boot disk copy I keep with the IBM
5155 and began trying different CP/M formats with it, including Kaypro 4 and
Osbourne Executive formats. It read both formats flawlessly, though I've
not tried formatting an Osbourne or Kaypro disk on the PC and then reading
it on the real machine since Uniform does that as well. The leaflet which
comes with the disk says that on an XT, the program supports 110 different
CP/M formats, while on an AT it supports 160 (I'm assuming with a HD disk

        I knew that I could read a number of different CP/M formats using
CP/M 3.0 on the C-128, but hadn't given this program much attention before.
Is there anyone out there who still uses this program for data exchange?
