TM(IV) 10/15/73 TM(IV) NAME tm - TM-11/TU-10 magtape interface DESCRIPTION The files mt0, ..., mt7 refer to the DEC TU10/TM11 magtape. When opened for reading or writing, the magtape is rewound. A tape consists of a series of 512 byte records terminated by an end-of-file. When the magtape is closed after writing, an end-of-file is written. The magtape can only be opened once at any instant. FILES /dev/mt? SEE ALSO tp(I) BUGS If you hit the EOF mark or get other non-data errors it refuses to do anything more until closed. There has to be some reasonable way to deal with multi-file tapes.
