After playing with rmt I found 2 things:
1) the symbolic link to /usr/sbin/rmt from /etc/rmt (standard place to look
for rmt) is missing.
2) In rmt man page it states that between commands and its paramteres, special
multiple line "O file perm" a space is a separator.
getstring() is used to get multiple params and getlines() read(f,p,1) stops
as soon as it finds a (wait , wait some more) a \n character. Not a space.
Guess a extra test for space should be added in getstring().
Regards, Gerard.
