SUMMARY: Ejecting tapes from their drives...with thanks!

Date: Wed Aug 18 1993 - 18:07:03 CDT

? How do I eject the 8mm Exabyte tape?

The consensus was: mt -f /dev/rst<n> rewoffl, where <n> is the tape number.

Additionally, using setenv to set the TAPE variable means that the mt commands
can omit "-f /dev/rst<n>" from their syntax.

Many thanks to those who offered their assistance. "There are too many to name
