Here's the source to Bill's streamer, a little backup program for QIC24
streaming tape drives and such. I took it home and compiled it, and
discovered this version waits indefinately for devices that don't exist
on the bus. (while(); sorts of loops in scsi.c) After I fixed that to
timeout, it seems to work right. It's pretty basic -- tiny interface,
very little error handling (though error checking stuff is in place),
but this is how he sent it.
I intend to upgrade it a bit, and when I do, I'll send it in. Bill
said it is to be under the usual copyleft freeware sort of arrangement
-- distribute it, but it remains his property. (don't sell it.)

(thanks, Bill!)
Here it is (a bit of a mess I'm afraid - kind of in between versions -
so if you can't get it to compile properly, get back to me). It's a
binhexed stuffit file, so you should be able to unpack everything OK.
I've not bothered to split it up into little pieces since most mailers
seem to be able to cope nowadays.

If it does get to you OK, then please let me know (and yes, do forward
it to macgifts)

Have fun!
