Applicable release versions: AP, AP 6.2, R83
Category Access: Verbs (152)
Description restores files from a tape that was generated by "t-dump".

If a selection criteria is not specified, the entire file is loaded.

If multiple "t-dumps" were performed, then multiple "t-load" are required to restore the data.

When saving to multiple reels, at the "insert" prompt (insert next reel and type "C" to continue) you may also type "Q" to quit.

"t-load" reads the tape label in order to get the tape block size. If the tape is unlabeled, "t-load" reads the first tape block, determines that the tape is unlabeled, and backspaces the tape by one block before continuing. In this case, the appropriate tape block size must have been specified using the "t-att" verb.
Syntax t-load file.reference {itemlist} {sellist} {modlist} {(options)}
Options a Bypasses tape label handling and assumes that media is positioned at the beginning of the desired data area.
i Suppresses display of item-ids.
m Suppresses display of error message 223 when the item is already on file and the "o" option is not used. (6.2 and above)
o Overwrites existing items, when duplicate item-id{s} exist.
p Directs output to printer, via the Spooler.
r{n} Loads binary items (which require contiguous frames) from "t-dump"'s made on a system with "n" data bytes per frame. (AP only).
v Reads items but does not write them into the file system. When used with the "o" option, it will write the data to the file.
