This IOCTL command allows an operator to remove media from the device. This command is normally used after the STIOC_PREVENT_MEDIUM_REMOVAL command to restore the device to the default state.

There is no associated data structure.

An example of the STIOC_ALLOW_MEDIUM_REMOVAL command is
#include <sys/IBM_tape.h>
if (!ioctl (tapefd, STIOC_ALLOW_MEDIUM_REMOVAL, NULL))
  printf ("The STIOC_ALLOW_MEDIUM_REMOVAL ioctl succeeded\n");
else {
   perror ("The STIOC_ALLOW_MEDIUM_REMOVAL ioctl failed");
