Hi all, I got a 8mm tape with a saved library on it. Unfortunately I have QIC drive on the AS/400 but I have a 8mm drive on a RS/6000. I "simply" want to duplicate the saved library to a QIC tape. (Of course I could ask for a SAVF, but that would be no challange :-)) Actually I have ripped the standard labels and the saved library to UNIX files. The file was written by OS/400 with *U record format, and variable block lengths - can I write variable length blocks (not records) via tape files? I FTPd the raw data from the RS/6000 to a PF on the AS/400, and copied to the QIC with CPYTOTAP. CPYTOTAP writes fixed length blocks - does it matter? RSTLIB recognized the hacked file as SAVRST data, but complained on damaged object and dumped :-( What would YOU try next?
