cdi_bsr - issue a backward space record command to a tape device


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


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


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

       -n     count
            The record count for the bsr SCSI command.


       -t     Use the -t option to specify the method of tape functions to use
              to issue the bsr 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_bsr 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_bsr -f /dev/rmt/2cbn -n 2 -v

      CDI_GET_VERSION returns 1
       CDI_BSR 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
