Did you really think that that was better than Electric Pencil?

My very first inspiration for writing XenoCopy was ads for Michael 
Shrayer's program to convert files from Electric Pencil disks to CP/M 
disks.  I never saw or used it, but the idea that files COULD BE converted 
between incompatible disk formats, . . .
Until August 1981, my development efforts were on TRS80.

TRS80 version was a welcome surprise, and then Pennington's PC version was 
a shock, but much too late.
