Subjectraw tape device support???
 Sorry if this isn't the correct place for this question. Is there or
will there
ever be raw tape device access. I'm trying to port an app from Dec unix
and at
least there the app requires /dev/rmt** (raw device). I've read in the
about how to bind a block device to a raw device using the raw command
but the
tape dev (/dev/st*) is a char device and the command doesn't work on
char devices.
So I'm trying to figure out to get the same effect as /dev/rmt* does on
the dec
box in a linux environment.
I'm not a member of this list (sorry) so if anyone can respond to this
cc to it

Thank you very much in advance
