Re: Tape devices - erst0?



>From the "st" manpage:

FILES
     /dev/[n][e]rst[0-9]  general form:
     /dev/rst0            Mode 0, rewind on close
     /dev/nrst0           Mode 2, No rewind on close
     /dev/erst0           Mode 3, Eject on close (if capable)
 
enrst would be eject AND no re-wind :)

Hope that helps!
