I have an array of different tape drives that I can plug into my system (8mm
Exabyte, 4mm DAT and QIC 250Meg)
I use the 'eject -q /dev/st0" command but I'm wondering wot you guys (and
gals) use for the control commands such as "erase" "retention" "set density"
"wfm (write file mark)" etc...
SCO has a nice tape command that will do everything including create
partitions on DAT drives.
An apropos on my RH system comes up short.
