You don't need this. All you need is cptape, a nice little tool
available from the TUHS archive (under PDP-11/Tools or so). This
reads a tape and tells and copies the files into a directory (as
file.###) and it tells you the block sizes of each (and writes
those into a log file.) Then all you need to do is use sed(1) to
create dd(1) commands to write those files back to tape. Works
beautifully and was my rescue to get the MDM tape from TK70 to
TK50 media.
