[HLP:TAPCOP.HLP (1 page)] TAPCOPY Program Abstract TAPCOPY copies magtape to magtape bit for bit, using dump mode I/O, using industry mode if both tapes are 9-track. Blocksize is determined by reading the tape. If the block does not fit in core, TAPCOPY expands the low segment, backspaces the input tape, and tries again. Tape error messages interpret each status bit as per Monitor Calls manual. Copies to double end-of-file mark. Initial size: 2+1P. Tested on TU-20, TU-40, TU-41 only. TAPCOP copies MAGtapes. How to use: 1. Mount the input tape. 2. Mount the output tape write-enabled. 3. R TAPCOP 4. Answer the following question(s): "Input device: " Respond with the logical or physical device name of the input tape. (If you just type a carriage return, the name defaults to "A".) "Output device: " Respond with the logical or physical device name of the output tape. (If you just type a carriage return, the name defaults to "B".) 5. If either tape drive is 7-track, the program will ask: "Odd parity (Y/N)". Type Y for yes or N for no. 6. TAPCOP will copy files until it comes to a double end-of-file mark. Then it will rewind both tapes. It will not rewind any tapes before copying, in case you want to avoid copying some files from the front of the input tape. 7. If both tapes are 9-track, TAPCOP will copy in industry-compatible mode. If either or both are 7-track, it will copy in DEC-compatible mode. 8. There is no need to SET BLOCKSIZE. TAPCOP will determine the blocksize for itself. [end of TAPCOP.HLP] .KJOB .
