tcopy - copy a magnetic tape
tcopy source [ destination ]
tcopy 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 dis-
plays information about the sizes of records and tape files. If a des-
tination is specified, tcopy makes a copies the source tape onto the
destination tape, with blocking preserved. As it copies, tcopy pro-
duces the same output as it does when only scanning a tape.
