tapechanger - a tape changing script, using TapeChanger::MTX
tapechanger -slot first tapechanger -eject
tapechanger is a tape changing program for MTX, using the TapeChanger::MTX module. It can load and unload tapes, as long as you have a tape changer to work with.
Supports the following options:
-info reports capability and loaded tape -slot <slot> loads specified tape into drive current reports current mounted tape next loads logically next tape (loops to top) prev loads logically previous tape (loops to bottom) first loads first tape last loads last tape 1..99 loads tape from specified slot# -eject unloads current mounted tape -reset resets changer (and drive); loads first tape
This should be compatible with AMANDA, the tape backup program.
Perl 5.6.0 or better, and TapeChanger::MTX (and everything it requires).
mtx, mt, TapeChanger::MTX. Inspired by stc-changer, which comes with the AMANDA tape backup package (http://www.amanda.org), and MTX, available at http://mtx.sourceforge.net.
