+The first line is the interpreted geometry per INT 13h AH=08h,DI=00h (in
+hex).  The second line is the data value at the sector CHS 0,1,1
+(indicating effective sectors per track).  The third line is the data
+value at CHS 1,0,1 (indicating effective heads per head count).  The
+fourth line indicates the value read at LBA 63.  The fifth line
+indicates the value read at LBA 16065.  The sixth line indicates the
+final expected mode.
+Images created by the Perl variant up to and including 6.03 are off by
+one and shifted by one byte.  In the above, the second line might read
+"00003E00" instead of "0000003F".
