       mkfs.cpm - make a CP/M file system


       mkfs.cpm [-f format] [-b boot] [-L label] [-t] image


       mkfs.cpm makes a CP/M file system on an image file or device.


       -f format
              Use the given CP/M disk format instead of the default format.

       -b bootblock
              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.

       -L label
              Label the file system.  This is only supported by CP/M Plus.

       -t     Create time stamps.


       Upon successful completion, exit code 0 is returned.


       Any errors are indicated by exit code 1.
