TCOPY(1)                     BSD Reference Manual                     TCOPY(1)

NAME

     tcopy - copy and/or verify mag tapes

SYNOPSIS

     tcopy [-cvx] [-s maxblk] [src [dest]]

DESCRIPTION

     tcopy is designed to copy magnetic tapes. The only assumption made about
     the tape is that there are two tape marks at the end. tcopy with only a
     source tape (/dev/rst0 by default) specified will print information about
     the sizes of records and tape files. If a destination is specified a copy
     will be made of the source tape. The blocking on the destination tape
     will be identical to that used on the source tape. Copying a tape will
     yield the same output as if just printing the sizes.

     The options are as follows:

     -c      Copy src to dest and then verify that the two tapes are identi-
             cal.

     -s maxblk
             Specify a maximum block size, maxblk.

     -v      Given the two tapes, src and dest, verify that they are identi-
             cal.

     -x      Output all informational messages to the standard error. This op-
             tion is useful when dest is /dev/stdout.
