     tcopy — copy and/or verify mag tapes

     tcopy [-cvx] [-s maxblk] [src [dest]]

     Tcopy is designed to copy magnetic tapes.	The only assumption made about
     the tape is that there are two tape marks at the end.  Tcopy with only a
     source tape (rmt0 by default) specified will print information about the
     sizes of records and tape files.  If a destination is specified a copy
     will be made of the source tape.  The blocking on the destination tape
     will be identical to that used on the source tape.	 Copying a tape will
     yield the same output as if just printing the sizes.


     -c	       Copy src to dest and then verify that the two tapes are identi‐

     -s maxblk
	       Specify a maximum block size, maxblk.

     -v	       Given the two tapes, and dest verify that they are identical.

     -x	       Output all informational messages to the standard error.	 This
	       option is useful when dest is /dev/stdout.


     The tcopy command appeared in 4.3BSD.
