TCOPY(1)                    General Commands Manual                   TCOPY(1)



NAME
       tcopy - copy a magnetic tape

SYNOPSIS
       tcopy source [ destination ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.
