# Description

The T-CHK command reads the label and data blocks from the tape device, thus checking for tape parity errors. T-CHK will continue reading until an end of file mark, (EOF), or end of media, (EOM), is encountered.

The command takes the general form:

T-CHK {CHANNEL=channel}
1

where channel is the specific channel attachment (0-9). For instance:

T-CHK
1

to read the tape device up to the next end of file mark.
