A BAD TRACK IS CREATED ON THE DISKETTE (LAST TRACK) 120 ' SO THAT DISK COPY WOULD NOT WORK. 130 ' IT REALLY DOES WORK THOUGH, BUT THE BAD TRACK IS 140 ' IS NOT COPIED. THIS BAD TRACK IS THE KEY. 150 ' WITH OUT THE BAD TRACK , WHICH EZWRITE NEEDS TO READ 160 ' THE PROGRAM WILL NOT RUN. 170 ' 2). EW1.COM IS READ IN (YOU DO THIS). EW1.COM INTURN 180 ' LOADS "IBM88VMI.COM", WHICH INTURN LOADS "TARGET.COM". 190 ' TARGET.COM IS THE GUTS OF EZWRITER. 200 ' "IBM88VMI.COM" CHECKS FOR THE BAD TRACK, AND IF IT 210 ' IS THERE LOADS "TARGET.COM" OTHERWISE BYE-BYE. 220 ' WHAT THIS SIMPLE PROGRAM DOES IS TELLS "IBM88VMI.COM" 230 ' TO IGNORE THE RESULTS OF THE CHECK FOR THE BAD TRACK. 240 ' THIS WAY AFTER YOU DO A "COPY *.*" OR "DISKCOPY" 250 ' YOU CAN THE USE AND MOVE THE EZWRITER PROGRAM TO ANY 260 ' MAGNETIC STORAGE MEDIA. 270 ' 280 '*************************************************************** 290 ' 300 ' TO MAKE A UNPROTECTED COPY OF EZWRITER: 310 ' 320 ' 1).
