Summary: Utility for Controlling Magnetic Tape Drives
mt-st tools contains two programs: mt and stinit, used for dealing
with Linux-specific tape-drive handling. mt program is tailored for
SCSI tape drives, but it can also be used with other Linux tape
drivers that use the same ioctls. The program stinit is meant for
initializing of SCSI tape drive modes at system startup, or when
new tape drivers are added.
