NAME rkf -- format RKO3 disk pack
SYNOPSIS rkf
DESCRIPTION rkf formats a virgin disk pack. Because it destroys allinformation on that pack, and because it is not interlocked


against file system activity on the pack, the rkf programis not maintained in executable form. Instead the source must be located and assembled.
FILES none (uses physical I/O on drive 0).
SEE_ALSO
DIAGNOSTICS "error" is printed and a core image is produced if a writeerror occurs. A copy of the RK status register is in


register 5.
BUGS As mentioned, is not interlocked against system I/O; if I/Ois already occurring, it will be badly disrupted. In any


event, all information on the pack is destroyed.
