Ken Gielow sold his Z80DIS (Z80 disassembler) for CP/M 80 as shareware ($20) thru his Butler, PA firm (SLR Systems), until the end of the 1980s.
I left Slippery Rock (just north of Butler) in the summer 1983 (about time of release).

Last week, Ken Gielow passed away.  
He was the author of the Z80DIS disassembler, which was both interactive and used a form of "artificial intelligence" to cleverly disassemble Z80 code.
