Hi Koen!

[ Please keep [email protected] in CC. ]

A Debian user (Gabor Kiss) asked for improving afio.

Gabor Kiss <[email protected]>:
> Package: afio
> Version: 2.5-3-kissg-1
> Severity: wishlist
> It would be useful if afio would handle output pipes (archive name
> prefixed with '!') like real devices.
> SIGPIPE should not abort the processing if subprocess returns
> 0 status (success). In this case pipe should be reopened.
> This way End Of Tape condition could be simulated.
> Subprocess might be quite intelligent to figure out the
> current volume size on the fly and to stop the transfer at the right
> moment. This is more flexible method than giving a fixed "-s size" option.
I don't know, if Gabor has already asked you for it.
Whould you agree that this is a useful improvement?

Perhaps Gabor is able to provide a patch for it, too? I think that will=20
increase the likelihood of a early implementation. ;-)

Kindly regards,
Erik Schanze
