And if it was generated on a Tandy/Radio Shack System I can definitely
handle it -- and CP/M as well.

The problem with these vague requests is that if the requestor doesn't
know what it came from, he probably doesn't deserve the information.
As opposed to the many honest threads we've had on conversion between
TRS-80, Apple, Commode, Atari, Kaypro (and other 5.25 CP/M formats),
etc. Why doesn't the requestor know where it came from? Is he a
government agent who stole the data from a "suspect" (In .au now,
probably wants to read the records of a gun retailer to track down
the customers)?
