Inroduction

Awsedit version 0.1 is the latest release (2011).

Awsedit is a GUI Utility that lets you view and extract data from an AWS Virtual Tape File.

Purpose of Awsedit

First Awsedit is intented for people who want to recover data from tapes or cartridges that come from Mainframes. The data on tape media may be either in EBCDIC or ASCII.

While extracting data, some operations on fields of data files are allowed only when in EBCDIC. (For explanation, refer to awsedit.pdf in doc directory)

Creating AWS Virtual Tape Files

To read data from tapes or cartridges you need, of course, the corresponding reader device.

You have to connect the reader device to a computer running Linux, with the hope that this device will be detected.Then install Hercules package from http://www.hercules-390.org/.

Finally, use Tapecopy (from hercules package) to read your tapes and create the AWS Virtual Tape Files.

Installing Awsedit

Follow instruction in the INSTALL file.

In case of issues

Refer to the FAQ file.
