cdi_bsf - issue a backward space file SCSI command to a tape device


       cdi_bsf -f device -n count [ -v ] [ -t { s | t | g | n | m | i } ]


       The  cdi_bsf program issues a backward space file (bsf) SCSI command to
       a tape device.  The cdi_bsf program also  returns  the  status  of  the
       named SCSI device (specified by the -f option).


       -f     device
            Specifies the device to send the bsf SCSI command to.

       -n     count
            The file count for the bsf SCSI command.  The "-n count" parameter
            is required.


       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
              to  issue  the bsf SCSI command.  If the -t option is not speci-
              fied, the default method is to  use  the  OS  tape  driver  SCSI
              passthrough  functions.   Please refer to the libcdi (1) manpage
              for the complete list of access methods currently  supported  by
              the cdi_bsf program.

       -v     Run the program in verbose mode.  This option will print out the
              version number of the CDI library used by the program.


       Sample output including drive status information:

     % cdi_bsf -f /dev/rmt/2cbn -n 2

     CDI_BSF 2 successful.
      elapsed time for command was 0 seconds
      cdi_info.drivestat is:
        status = 0, DRIVE_STATUS_READY
        msg = The tape drive is ready for use
