110868     TAPUTL  Version: 2.03, March 1987
Submitted by: Stephen Bart, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY
Operating System: RT-11 V5.0X  Source Language: FORTRAN 77  Memory
Required: 28KW  Keywords: Utilities - Tape
Abstract: The TAPUTL utility will copy data from tape to tape, tape to
disk, or disk to tape.  It can also space, write end of file
marks, dump, and rewind tapes.  The utility assumes no
particular file structure on the tape and can be used with
tapes of essentially any format (including tapes with a
variable record length within a file) and with records of
any size up to a specified maximum (4096 words in standard
version).  The maximum record size can be modified easily by
editing and recompiling the source code.  The utility treats
tapes as non RT-11 file structured media (a file structured
tape can be considered non file structured) with a file
being defined as the data between two end of file marks (BOT
and EOT count as end of file marks).
The program will accept commands like any other RT-11
utility, either by first running the program and issuing a
Command String Interpreter (CSI) command or by installing the
program on the SY: device and using Concise Command Language
(CCL) commands.  The latter feature makes it extremely easy
for the user to define his/her own commands with the UCL/UCF
TAPUTL was written and tested most extensively with the TM11
driver (MT:) and to a lesser degree the TS11 driver (MS:),
but should work with any tape driver which accepts the
standard .SPFUN commands.
Restrictions: FORTRAN 77 is required to recompile the source code.
Media (Service Charge Code): One RX01 Diskette (KA)  Format: RT-11,
600' Magnetic Tape (MA)  Format: RT-11
