       cdi_get_config - get configuration information on a tape device

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

       The  cdi_get_config program obtains configuration information on a tape
       device.	The data output from this command is  collected from the  SCSI
       Mode Sense disconnect/reconnect, data compression and device configura‐
       tion pages.

       -f     device
	    Specifies the device to obtain configuration information from.

       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
	      to  query	 the  device for configuration information.  If the -t
	      option is not specified, the default method is  to  use  the  OS
	      tape  driver  SCSI  passthrough  functions.  Please refer to the
	      libcdi (8) manpage for a complete list of	 access	 methods  cur‐
	      rently supported by the cdi_get_config 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_get_config -f /dev/rmt/2cbn -v

     CDI_GET_VERSION returns 1
