[vmsnet.sources] VMS version of DD

Hi Netters,

I was wondering if anyone out there had the source code for a VMS tape
tool that would allow you to copy a file directly from a tape to a disk
file.  It doesn't have to have any of the extra `dd' features, just
direct copy.

The reason I ask is that we do not have one of the old tape drives on
our UNIX system anymore, but would still like to be able to read the tapes
once in a while to copy onto 8mm etc.  But because the tapes are foreign
we cannot just use copy.  Any pointers here would be appreciated.
