TCOPY(1)				     BSD General Commands 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. Options: -c Copy src to dest and then verify that the two tapes are identical. -s maxblk Specify a maximum block size, maxblk. -v Given the two tapes, 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.
