Why the Strange Name

There are many tape utilities available, some for free and some for sale. This is an overview of a tape utility with a strange name TAPEMNGL. Some call it "tape-mingle" because it allows the user to mingle files and data through its copy functions, but its creators refer to it as "tape-mangle" because it allows the user to find out what is really on that oddball tape before they feel like mangling it. A second reason for referring to it as "tape-mangle" is its ability to recover data from tapes mangled by tape drives.
