       cdi_fsf - issue a forward space file SCSI command to a tape device

       cdi_fsf -f device -n count [ -v ] [ -t { s | t | g | n | m | i } ]

       The cdi_fsf program issues a forward space file (fsf) SCSI command to a
       tape device.  The cdi_fsf program also returns the status of the	 named
       SCSI device (specified by the -f option).

       -f     device
	    Specifies  the  device  to	send  the fsf SCSI command to.	The -f
	    option is a required option.

       -n     count
	    The file count for the fsf SCSI command.

       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
	      to  issue	 the fsf SCSI command.	If the -t option is not speciā€
	      fied, the default method is to  use  the	OS  tape  driver  SCSI
	      passthrough  functions.	Please refer to the libcdi (8) manpage
	      for the complete list of access methods currently	 supported  by
	      the cdi_fsf program.

       -v     Run the program in verbose mode.	This option will print out the
	      version number of the CDI library used by the program.

       Sample output including drive status information:

     % cdi_fsf -f /dev/rmt/2cbn -n 2

     CDI_FSF 2 successful.
      elapsed time for command was 0 seconds
