I got this via email today:


For a magazine review of a file-viewing program, Iím trying to find data files in a variety of old formats that would be used in testing. Would you have any you could send or know someone who would have such files? Iím interested in files from word processor, spreadsheet, database, presentation, and graphics programs. The data files Iím looking for include those from programs such as WordStar, DisplayWrite, Enable, PFS:Write, MultiMate, dBase, FoxBase, Paradox, Lotus 1-2-3, Quattro Pro, Freelance, Harvard Graphics, and the like. Thanks for your help.

Wordstar is available on the 'net, or is he after something in
particular. This site might be of interest to him:

http://cpm.interfun.net/cpm/html

he could look up some of the early DR programs perhaps, I believe
DR Draw is there (so he could look at creating image files from
that). Wordstar is at this site:

I think it's only for CP/M? There's a CP/M-86 version of it there, so
maybe he should look into CP/M-86?
