BTNtape is the "Better Than Nothing" AmigaDOS handler to access your SCSI
tape drive from application programs.  It can be used with Amiga TAR
to do disk backup and restore and exchange data with Un*x boxes.
This is version 3.0, an update to version 2.1.  Includes C source code.

Here are some of the new features that were added:
  - file number tracking, could be used to make a tape directory
  - optional safety modes: read-only and append-only
  - limited error recovery allows continuing after media errors
  - options to rewind and/or eject tape when the file closes

Here are some of the bugs that were fixed:
  - fixed bad decoding of board# and LUN from 3-digit unit number
  - write at end of file writes only the necessary number of blocks
  - read at end of file returns all the data
  - fixed incompatibility with Steve Koren's Job Manager (JM)

See the changes.doc file for a complete list of fixes and enhancements.
