Mt tape command and ctrl+c break

backup

#1

Hi,

Thanks for your article " 15 Useful Linux and Unix Tape Managements Commands For Sysadmins"

The article don’t discuss about breaking (ctrl+c) some commands like canceling during a tar backup, an erase operation. Or a power-off tape device during operation.
Do the user must use mt to positionate at an EOF after, do the tape drive ensure cancel operations and nothing to do after.

Best regards.
