Reading and Writing Data to and from Tapes

Reading tapes is more of an art than a science. This is true in general, and is especially true for SU. The variability of hardware formats, as well as the variability of data format types, makes the creation of a ``general tape reading utility'' a challenging, if not impossible, proposition.

The following programs are useful for the specialized data input and output tasks related to geophysical applications, as well as to the internal SU data format

The following programs are useful for general data input, output, and data type conversion, which may also find use in tape reading,
