TCOPY(1) BSD General Commands Manual TCOPY(1)
tcopy -- copy and/or verify mag tapes
tcopy [-cvx] [-s maxblk] [src [dest]]
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 destina-
tion 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.
-c Copy src to dest and then verify that the two tapes are identical.
Specify a maximum block size, maxblk.
-v Given the two tapes, src and dest verify that they are identical.
-x Output all informational messages to the standard error. This option is useful
when dest is /dev/stdout.
The tcopy command appeared in 4.3BSD.
