       tcopy - copy a magnetic tape

       tcopy source [destination]

       The  tcopy  utility  copies  the  magnetic tape mounted on the tape drive specified by the
       source argument. The only assumption made about the contents of a tape is that  there  are
       two tape marks at the end.

       When  only  a  source  drive  is specified, tcopy scans the tape, and displays information
       about the sizes of records and tape files. If a destination is specified,  tcopy  makes	a
       copies  the  source tape onto the destination tape, with blocking preserved. As it copies,
       tcopy produces the same output as it does when only scanning a tape.

       The tcopy utility requires the use of Berkeley-compatible device names. For example,

	 example% tcopy /dev/rmt/1b /dev/rmt/2b
