Hello fellow NetBSD users. I've been using Jason's chio(8) routines
to drive several tape autoloaders on NetBSD systems. They're working
greate, but I'd like to use dump in auto-detect-end-of-tape mode and then
have the scripts move the tapes around to continue the dump. Could someone
provide examples of such scripts which use dump? How do I get dump to take
input from a script, what options do I give it to allow it to pass control
back to the calling script or call another script to do the work?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
