I suspect you are asking the wrong questions. Have you tried
contacting IBM directly - if they make/sell it they should
support it! And it's almost inconceivable that there is no API.

I assume you mean that there is some kind of web application
and you are looking at the browser code? Not the actual code
of the tape management system?

Also, what tape library is it? Which OS are you using?
That would help a lot. It may be that the OS provides
a generic tape API that your product conforms too.

Sorry I've never heard of these before.

Sending a long, unedited, badly formatted Javascript/html listing
to a Python mailing list is unlikely to win you support or favor.
Try extracting the salient functions and posting them.
