Was the internal structure of VMS Backup save sets on disk & tape
ever documented? I though it was in a Backup manual appendix at one
time, but can't find it in the manuals I have.
I don't recall documentation published for that, but it's certainly possible.
The header files containing the data structure descriptions are
included with OpenVMS, though they're in a weird place; in
The headers will probably give you some search targets for finding more
The vmsbackup tool—I have a copy of that tool around—deals with most of
The BACKUP /ANALYZE qualifer might be interesting here, too.
