Paper Tape Images

Tape Categories:

Hello, and welcome to my tape archive.

The various sub-directories have various tape images in them,using what I hope is a fairly obvious system.

The actual tape images themselves come as a set of related files:

The tape image itself generally has no extension. File names that end in "-pb" should be in BIN format, "-pm" is for RIM format, "-pa" is for PAL source code, and "-ft" is for FORTRAN source code.
There will always be a .od for every tape image, which contains a human readable octal dump of the tape image.
If the file looks like it most likely contains text, there will be a .txt file, which contains the ASCII text, with nulls stripped out, and the eighth bit forced off, which is usually necessary for the text to display properly with modern equipment.
