I didn't get any response to my request for a UCSD pascal program that
will transfer CPM files to UCSD operating system files.  I know there
is such a problem because I have it (only the middle part is garbled).
If no one has it can anyone recommend a good book on the CPM directory
structure so that I can do it myself?  -Thanks, david

   Sorry, I must have missed this request the last time.  There is a system
called XenoFile, under UCSD, which is intended for transfer to/from CP/M.
As I recall (never having used it myself) it consists of two programs and 
three units.  What this sort of complexity is for, I know not.

   I believe it is available from both NCI in Vancouver and SofTech Microsystems
in San Diego.  Best thing to do is contact them.

   Funny thing is, there is a single unit from NCI, called PCDOS, which 
handles transfers to/from DOS discs.  Why won't the same arrangement work with 
CP/M?  I have no idea.

				Happy hunting
