having used CP/M in the day, CP/M is/was more like RT-11 and bits
I've done disassembly and analysis of code for proof of a software
theft in a courtroom drama. There's little a tool can do, save for
the disassembly, to expose ensconsed details of copying or theft.
Searches for strings? That's the first thing a software thief of
even the most modest abilities would change making such "analytic"
conclusions rather dubious.
