default device tapex

Hi all,

according to man pages /dev/tape/tape0_d0 is the default device for tapex for 5.1B.
But the command complains that it can not find /dev/rmt0h.

How can this be?

Re: default device tapex

It seems that the manpage was updated, but not the command:

# strings tapex |grep "/dev/tape"
# strings tapex |grep "/dev/rmt"
/dev/rmt0h
-f /dev/rmt#?
-f /dev/rmt#?
density device. For example /dev/rmt4h or /dev/rmt1l.
density device. For example /dev/rmt4h or /dev/rmt1l.
/dev/rmt0h
/dev/rmt0h
tapex -f /dev/rmt1h -E -o tapex.out
tapex -f /dev/rmt1h -E -o tapex.out
tapex -f /dev/rmt4h -v -e
tapex -f /dev/rmt4h -v -e

Re: default device tapex

Michael,
unfortunately tapex seems to still have the old device naming convention in the program.

I hope someone fomr HP looks at this interesting thing that you have pointed out and gets it fixed.

thanks
