       dds-dd [ -f device ]


       dds-dd reads a dds tape devices (DAT). Every block is read
       and written to stdout. A tape with unknown block  size  or
       blocks of different size can be read.

       The  default  device is /dev/rmt0, which may be overridden
       with the environment variable TAPE, which in turn  may  be
       overridden with the -f device option. The device must be a
       character special file.


       -f device
              Device of the tape archive (default is  /dev/rmt0).
              Must be a character special file connected to a dds
              tape device.

              Print the version number of mt-dds  to  stderr  and
              exit immediately.

       --help print  some  screens  of  online help with examples
              through a pager and exit immediately.


       Example: Read the tape and make a listing:
                 dds-dd | tar ft -

       Example: Read the tape and make a listing:
                 dds-dd | cpio -it


       The environment variable TAPE overrides the  default  tape
       device /dev/rmt0.
