VMS/IRAF Installation and Site Manager's Guide

5.2. [IRAF.DEV]DEVICES

This file is used to associate IRAF logical device names with VMS device names. This file is no longer used by the IRAF magtape i/o system which is now all tapecap based, but is used by host level utilities like devstatus which need a simple way to translate IRAF device names to host device names. The file is optional and need not be configured to run IRAF.
