NAME
       tcopy - copy a magnetic tape

SYNOPSIS
       tcopy source [destination]

DESCRIPTION
       The  tcopy  utility  copies the magnetic	tape mounted on	the tape drive
       specified by the	source argument. The only assumption  made  about  the
       contents	of a tape is that there	are two	tape marks at the end.

       When  only  a source drive is specified,	tcopy scans the	tape, and dis-
       plays information about the sizes of records and	tape files.  If	a des-
       tination	 is  specified,	 tcopy makes a copies the source tape onto the
       destination tape, with blocking preserved. As it	copies,	tcopy produces
       the same	output as it does when only scanning a tape.

       The tcopy utility requires the use of Berkeley-compatible device	names.
       For example,

       example%	tcopy /dev/rmt/1b /dev/rmt/2b
