       cdi_tur - send a test unit ready SCSI command to a tape device

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

       The  cdi_tur  program  sends  a	test unit ready SCSI command to a tape
       device.	The cdi_tur program also returns the status of the named  SCSI
       device (specified by the -f option).

       -f     device
	    Specifies the device to send the SCSI command to.

       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
	      to to perform the operation.  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 the  com‐
	      plete  list of access methods currently supported by the cdi_tur

       -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_tur -f /dev/rmt/2cbn
     CDI_TUR successful.
       cdi_info.drivestat is:
	 status = 0, DRIVE_STATUS_READY
	 msg = The tape drive is ready for use
