Hi,

My requirement is to find out the size in KB of a large number of tape files. Can anybody help me on how to do this.

I can access the tape to dasd but since there are large number of big size files and i cant do this.

I know the BLOCK SIZE and BLOCK CNT and any option to find out the size in KB with these.

Thx,
Satish




Thx,

( block_size * block_count ) / 1024
or
( lrecl * record_count ) / 1024

??
