NAME mkfs.cpm - make a CP/M file system
DESCRIPTION mkfs.cpm makes a CP/M file system on an image file or device.
Use the given CP/M disk format instead of the default format.
Write the contents of the file bootblock to the system tracks
instead of filling them with 0xe5. This option can be used up to four
times. The file contents (typically boot block, CCP, BDOS and BIOS)
are written to sequential sectors, padding with 0xe5 if needed.
Label the file system. This is only supported by CP/M Plus.
RETURN VALUE Upon successful completion, exit code 0 is returned.
ERRORS Any errors are indicated by exit code 1.
