RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ammt (redhat section 8)

AMMT(8) 										  AMMT(8)

NAME
       ammt - Amanda version of mt

SYNOPSIS
       ammt [ -d ] [ -f|-t device ] command [ count ]

DESCRIPTION
       Ammt  provides  just  enough  of the standard mt command for the needs of Amanda.  This is
       handy when doing a full restore and the standard mt program has not yet been found.

       Ammt also provides access to the Amanda output drivers that support various  tape  simula-
       tions.

       See  the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.  See the OUTPUT DRIVERS section
       of amanda(8) for more information on the Amanda output drivers.
