[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\MagTape]
Format: MAGTAPE [DEVICE <device name>] [UNIT <n>] [RET|RETENSION]
[REW|REWIND] [SKIP <n>)
Template: DEVICE/K, UNIT/N/K, RET=RETENSION/S, REW=REWIND/S, SKIP/N/K
Purpose: To retension, rewind, or skip forward on SCSI tapes.
By default, MAGTAPE uses SCSl.device unit 4. To change the default, you must
use both the DEVICE and UNIT keywords.
The RET|RETENSION option runs the tape to the end, then rewinds it. The
REW|REWIND option rewinds the tape. The SKIP <n> option allows you to skip
files on the tape.
MAGTAPE tests to see if the unit is ready before sending the command. If
your tape is not on-line, you may have to repeat the MAGTAPE command.
