UNLOAD          UNLOAD A DEVICE                        TAATAPU

The Unload  a Device  command provides  a simple function  to ensure  a
device  is  unloaded for  a  *TAP device  (virtual  or real).    If the
command  completes successfully  and unloads  the device  or the device
is  not in  a  ready  status  (the status  if  already  unloaded),  the
command  completes   normally.    Different   completion  message  text
describes  the  condition.   The command  may  be helpful  when several
save commands are used  in a CL  program and it  is not known what  the
device condition is at the end.

The tape must be initialized.

A typical command would be:


The device defaults to TAP01.
