[Coco] ignoring tape errors

Bob, CTM (Color Tape Manager) is a great utility to have.  I used to use it a lot.  It can load bad tapes to memory, where they can be “fixed” if the damage is minor.  CTM was marketed by Color Computer Systems, and written by Rodger Smith, who also wrote Brewmaster, Flippy, and other great Coco programs.  There is companion program called CDM (Color Disk Manager).  Both utilities are awesome.

Hi all,

I'm trying to resurrect a bunch off cassette files, many of which give 
I/O errors.

I seem to recall a program/method of making the Coco ignore these errors 
so that the file can load and the bad file *may* be fixed. Does anyone 
remember this?

Regards, Bob Devries
