Wehave provided them to you in two different forms.  If you have /// EZ Pieces,or AppleWorks,  there is a Data Base file which you can pull into the programand use  directly.   We have also provided most of the same basic informationin the  form  of  an ASCII text file which your Menu.Maker program is able toread.  Use  the  Text.Dump  program  to  print  it  (or load it into any wordprocessing program and print from there.)       Also  on side  one,  you will find a listing of disks developed by Dr.Bloom and  placed  into  the  public  Domain.   As with the articles, we haveincluded both  a /// EZ Pieces Data Base file and an ASCII file with the samebasic information,  including  where  to  obtain  the disks and how much theycost.       On side  two of  this  disk you  will find  Dr. Bloom's fine series ofarticles on  "Issues in MicroComputer File and Data  Conversion."  Basically,that means  articles discussing  how to get  information from one computer toanother.  There  are  a  total  of  12 columns included on side two.  To readthem, simply  highlight  the  "Run.Issues"  selection from Menu.Maker and hit.  You  will  be  asked  to turn the disk over and Basic will take itfrom  there. MENU.MAKER will let you print any text file, or you can pull them into any Apple family word processor.  We've also included "Print.All"that can print all the text files you like.                 The "Issues" menu looks like this:               Issues In Microcomputer File and Data Conversion                           Allan M. Bloom, PhD CDP                                 1.
