The DOSTAP program is used to read and write PDP-11 magtapes
in "DOS" format. The DOS format can be read and written by RSX-11
and RT-11 FILEX. Transfers are done in ASCII mode unless the file
has extension .OBJ. In that case, the formatted binary object file
is written during a WRITE command.
There are only three relevant commands to the DOSTAP program:
TAPE tapename: is used to specify the
magnetic tape device to
be used; note that a colon must
follow the tape name
WRITE filenames is used to cause the tape
to be written from the
named DECsystem-10 files
READ is used to read the tape
onto disk. The filenames
are supplied from the magnetic
tape and will overwrite any
pre-existing disk files by
the same name
DOSTAP has many of the features of FUR, the DECsystem-10
file utility. The filenames argument can include such
"SCAN" switches as /BEFORE, /LENGTH, wildcards, etc.
The DECIDE command will allow a decision before writing
each file (but does not affect reading). The QUIT command
can be used to exit DOSTAP.
