Abstract: This program allows read/write to Unix TAR format floppies
RX01, RX02, or RX50 drives under the RSX or P/OS operating
systems. All sources, including a version of SUPERMAC that
will work with them are included, plus objects and a P/OS
task image. Necessary adjuncts including a task to mount
RX50's foreign under P/OS are presented.
Also on the disk are a P/OS version of the RSX SRD Working
Group SRD utility and R. Kirkman's image mode RX50 copier for
P/OS, and an inspect-only file lister from the Fall 1984 RSX
SIG tape with some local enhancements.
Using the TAR program it is possible to move files between
P/OS and various flavors of UNIX (tm) on floppy. This can be
handy where communications utilities are unavailable on one
end or the other, or where faster throughput is needed than
is possible on even a very high speed communications line.
