- KEYBIT Lite v7

- CD-Bench v2.1
Small, fast and reliable benchmark for CD-ROM drives. High resolution timing (0.1 ms), 99% of asm code, 100% freeware.
Many people think that the data transfer rate of CD-ROM drives is constant from the beginning to the end of the disc, but this is true only for old-and-slow models. CD-Bench is the only benchmark that reads the disc in six different points and displays six results, so you can see if and how the speed varies. Size: 14 kB.

Converts spaces to TABs or vice versa, also removes blanks from the end of lines. Now supports Windows95 long filenames. Very fast. Size: 12 kB.
