Your program worked beautifully writing a SIMH format file on my HP 88780
tape! Thanks a million. Nothing like sending direct SCSI commands to tape
from DOS. Drivers are overrated ;-).

My "ST.EXE" program (available from http://www.dbit.com/pub/ibmpc/util/
including source) runs on real DOS (not Windows) and can write from an
E11-format .TAP file (which SIMH uses a garbled version of, but they're
interchangeable for *even* record lengths which are 99% of the universe) to
a real tape[...] John Wilson D Bit ===============================
