hardware, storage A reel of magnetic tape about 4 inches
in diameter and one inch wide. Unlike today's macrotapes,
microtape drivers allowed random access to the data, and
therefore could be used to support file systems and even for
swapping (this was generally done purely for hack value,
as they were far too slow for practical use). DECtape was a
variant on LINCtape.
