       dds2index [options]


       dds2index  creates  an  index file that is required by the
       file extraction  utility  dds2tar(1).   It  works  on  tar
       archives stored on dds tape devices (DAT).  Since the file
       structure of the tape archives  is  used  to  extract  the
       files,  the  archive  must be an uncompressed tar archive.
       But compression by the transparent signal processor of the
       tape device is allowed.

       The  index  created  by  dds2index is written to stdout by
       default and should normally be  stored  on  hard  disk  as
       indexfile for later use by dds2tar(1).

       The  default  tape device to read from 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 SCSI tape device.


       -f devicefile
              device of the tape archive.  Must  be  a  character
              special file.

       -t indexfile
              write the index to indexfile, not to stdout.

              write the index in (gzip) compressed mode.

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

OPTIONS you didn't really need

       -b, --block-size
              Set the maximal blocksize, dds2index can handle.

       --z, --no-compress
              Don't filter the archive file through  gzip.

              verbose  mode. Print to stderr what is going

              Print a hash sign '#' to stderr for each  MB
              read from tape.


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


       /dev/rmt0     default tape device file. Must  be  a
                     character special file.
