I understand there's a port of tar in the 'latest' package.
Does this tar 'know' how to access tape drives (DAT actually) on the
SCSI bus (as /dev/rmt/... does not exist on the NT machine) ?
If yes what's the syntax (the FAQ refers to the general tar doc. on the
GNU site, which doesn't
specify anything for non-Unix systems).
If not, is there a tar available somewhere that will access a SCSI
DAT drive directly.
Thanks for any pointer.
P.S. A few years ago, I had a DOS port of GNU-tar that used ASPI to
access SCSI tapes. One can hope things have only become better since...
