FSF (Forward Space File)

Purpose
Move the tape forward one or more tape files.
Usage notes
A tape file consists of blocks of data delimited by a tape mark. For this function, a tape label set is also considered a file. The tape stops after the specified number of tape marks has been read. The tape is positioned after the tape mark and a following read or write command reads or overwrites the record following that tape mark.
Options
None.
