Re: copy special file in the tape

Hello,

You did not speccify which HP-UX version you
use and what version of tar(1M).

Simplest method:

# cd targetDirectory

Then, depending on how the tar archive
was made:

# mt -f /dev/rmt/0m rew
# tar xvf /dev/rmt/0m fullpath_to_a.tar

If you are not sure about the fullpath:

# tar tvf /dev/rmt/0m

Cheers,
