Abstract: MAGINT, the MAGnetic tape INTerchange program, is designed to facilitate the interchange of data between computers over a common medium: the magnetic tape. Tapes are read and written in card-image format (usually 80 bytes/record) padded with spaces: this figure is variable, however. ASCII/EBCDIC and other code conversions can be performed as needed. Magtape I/O methods provide flexibility in operation. MAGINT comes with thorough documentation and a User's Guide.

Restrictions: MAGINT uses system functions and language syntax not available in versions previous to RSTS/E V7.0. MAGINT cannot process compiled or object code, only source or text material.
