tapecat is a tape utility used to describe the physical content of a tape. By physical content it's meant the files written on tape as understood by the tape driver. It's not meant the content of each such file.

The output will present the number of the file on tape, it's size based on tape blocks read and the type of file. The type of file will be shown using the file command. So, this command needs to be available.

A special treatment is reserved for amanda tapes, where all information regarding the tape and it's content is displayed. The information includes the tape label, the diskdevice and the diskname as specified in the disklist file.
