A few years ago, I was in the middle of writing a tape file to
tape file convertor ...

..tpc, .tap (RSX), .tap (E11), .tap (Charon)

Never did finish it ... don't know where the remnants are now
... sorry folks but I did work out the conversions needed.

If I remember the E11 was the smartest of the versions in
terms of knowing where you are on the tape.
