essential CP/M files

If you're getting into an editor, you should probably use something like the
"real" WordStar of at least v2.2. That one can edit in columns, to an extent
I've not seen in ANY other editor before or since. The one really important
part of that is that one can then discard the assembler output and save only the
source in a ".PRN" or ".LST" file.

That will lead to needing MUCH less storage.
