Maybe someone will think "why extra format"? But 3rd party utilities
can have more flexible function such as "format without verify", "bulk
format", "force 1680k", "hard disk format (!)" ... all without command
line switches, should be comfortable for those users used to work with

I maybe the only one on the list, because I think the users need some
"bonus" software to did the job when the command line become too many

If you're interested I can send you the Format Master for reference,
that program should be written in Turbo Pascal, have a runtime error
200 running on fast PC.
