Abstract
The program VTAPE describes a procedure for deciphering magnetic tapes having unknown formats as normally obtained from external sites. It may be used to determine the format of the magnetic tape and to copy its contents to some directory or file space on the disk structure. Also, commands are included to set the hardware parameters (density, parity and hardware data mode) as well as to permit command recognition and provide internal help.
