PL/I Files from VM Workshop Tools Tapes

The Tools are stored as VMARC archive files with a Read-me and List file for each VMARC package. After receiving a VMARC file it must be reformatted a little before the VMARC command can unpack it:
   PIPE < filename VMARC filemode
        | FBLOCK 80 00
        | > filename VMARC filemode F 80
