       erase - erase a tape

       erase [ -sr ] -a b.t.l

       The erase program will send the SCSI ERASE command to the named device,
       using the LONG erase option unless the optional -s argument  is	speci‐

       -s     Uses  the	 SHORT erase option, rather than the LONG option. LONG
	      is used by default.

       -r     sends a REWIND command to the named device prior to  issuing  an
	      erase command.

       -a     This  is	a required argument, and must be used to select a spe‐
	      cific ordinal SCSI address (see libscsi(8)) for the device  that
	      has the tape.

       Be  careful!  This command destroys data! It does not prompt you to see
       whether you are sure you want to do this.
