Category Tape Commands (36)
Description On Advanced Pick 6.1.0 and higher, exists the multi-user tape interface that supercedes the single-user tape interface.

A port can now attach more than one device to itself and ports can independently access different tape devices simultaneously. This expands the functionality of t-det. It now requires a device number or else it will detach all tape devices held by the port. T-det (u will release all tape devices on the system.

The old t-att command is now used primarily to change block sizes.

A new command t-act is available to switch between devices if more than one is attached to a single port. Remember, you can only issue one tape command at a time.
