Hi - the common ones are

        ufsdump
        tar
        cpio

Also, you might be able to suck of the contents with dd
and examine it with od.

See

        man ufsrestore
        man tar
        man cpio
        man dd
        man od

Not sure why this is in comp.security but when I know _nothing_ about a
tape I start with the tcopy command. With only the input device operand
ctopy will tell you the number of files and sie of records (blocks).

shouldn't that read tar tvf... you don't want to extract, only to list the
contents... also, in case it's a lengthy index, you probably want to
redirect the output to a file, not sit and watch teh screen... better yet:

nohup tar tvf /dev/rmt/xxxx &

log out, and come back after a good few cups of coffee -- _if_ it's even a
tar archive....

Do a man on dd.

This should help. I don't know the exact command but I can look tomorrow if
you like.

1. Need tape utility to display contents of unknown tapes

We need a program that will read tapes (typically 9-track) and return the
following:

1) the first 80 or so bytes of each record on the tape, both in hex and
ascii (with ebcdic converter?)
2) the number of records in each tape file
3) the size of the records
4) the number of files in the tape.

I?ve seen a utility like this called ?precis? on IBM mainframes and
clones years ago, and we need one for our HP, Sun, and RISC workstations.
 Can someone please help?
