The command reads a tape record into the primary input buffer. It takes the general form:
- C performs an EBCDIC to ASCII conversion before the data is put into the buffer.
- A masks 8-bit ASCII characters to 7 bits (resets the most significant bit to a 0).
The IT command will read a tape record into the primary input buffer. The new data will be placed at the beginning of the buffer and will replace all existing buffer data.
