data migration

A crude but effective way is to connect a PC to a serial line of the DPS6.
Dump whatever you have to dump to the serial line in HEX or oct format. Run
a VT100 emulator on the PC and log whatever you receive to disk. Write a
small program to convert the log file to the original information. The
dumping process may take days, but you could start it on Friday afternoon
and collect the data on Monday morning.

J need to migrate data from a 3M DC600A Data Cartridge(60Mb) backed up from
an internal tape onto a Honeywell Bull DPS6-Plus to any PC-compatible
media-support. This means Floppy, Zip, cd-rom, ecc.)
thank for your attention
