tcopy - copy a magnetic tape
SYNOPSIS tcopy source
utility copies the magnetic tape mounted on the tape drive
specified by the source
argument. The only assumption made about the
contents of a tape is that there are two tape marks at the end.
When only a source drive is specified, tcopy
scans the tape, and displays
information about the sizes of records and tape files. If a destination
is specified, tcopy
makes a copies the source tape onto the destination
tape, with blocking preserved. As it copies, tcopy
produces the same
output as it does when only scanning a tape.
utility requires the use of Berkeley-compatible device names.
