3. R TAPCOP
4. Answer the following question(s):
"Input device: " Respond with the logical or physical device
name of the input tape. (If you just type a carriage return,
the name defaults to "A".)
"Output device: " Respond with the logical or physical device
name of the output tape. (If you just type a carriage return,
the name defaults to "B".)
5. If either tape drive is 7-track, the program will ask:
"Odd parity (Y/N)". Type Y for yes or N for no.
6. TAPCOP will copy files until it comes to a double end-of-file mark.

copying, in case you want to avoid copying some files from the front
of the input tape.
