.PP
Sends a SCSI OPEN ZONE, CLOSE ZONE, FINISH ZONE or SEQUENTIALIZE ZONE
command to the \fIDEVICE\fR. All but the last are found in the soon to

The SEQUENTIALIZE ZONE command was added in zbc2r01b.

One and only one of the \fI\-\-open\fR, \fI\-\-close\fR, \fI\-\-finish\fR
and \fI\-\-sequentialize\fR options can be chosen.

.TP
\fB\-C\fR, \fB\-\-count\fR=\fIZC\fR
ZC is placed in the Zone Count field in the cdb of all four commands
supported by this utility. ZC should be a value from 0 to 65535 (0xffff)
inclusive.
.TP
