Format II testing with IECHost

This evening I wrote a small application to test and time “Format II” routines when formatting a 35-track disk with my 1541-II.

Here’s the output of the tool:

IECHost Format II utility, rel 1.0 - (C) 2018 Luigi Di Fraia
Communicates with an IECHost device to format disks

Formatting... succeded in 19.16 seconds

Not bad at all if you ask me!
