Flags for cpio commands that the SAP tools use for reading files from a tape volume.

Syntax: cpio_in_flags = <flags>

Default value: -iuvB 

The option B causes a block size of 5KB to be used. You can also use a higher block size, such as 64 KB (if cpio permits this for your hardware platform), to increase performance when writing to tape.

The block size in cpio_flags and cpio_in_flags must match.
