cdrw - write files/directories or an iso9660 image to cdrw


  cdrw [options] arg...
    -h, --help    - Show the help message then exit
    -V, --version - Show the version message then exit
    -s, --speed # - Override default speed (10)
    -i, --iso     - Argument is an iso9660 image


cdrw writes files and directories or an iso9660 image to cdrw. All parameters such as the cdrw device, the speed and so on are specified in the configuration file. The speed can be overridden with the -s option.

The command line arguments are passed directly through to mkisofs along with the -graft-points option. This means that if you specify a single directory, the root directory of the cdrw will contain the contents of that directory. If you specify multiple directories, their contents will be merged to form the root directory of the cdrw.

In order to place multiple directories in the cdrw's root directory, you need to graft them into place. For example, to create a cdrw containing the contents of the ``a'' directory (without the ``a'' directory itself), the ``b'' and ``c'' directories and the file ``d.e'':

    cdrw a b/=b c/=c d.e

Don't forget the slashes when grafting a directory into place or the cdrw will contain its contents, not the directory itself. See ``man mkisofs'' for more details.

The -i option treats the (single) non-option command line argument as the name of an iso9660 image file and burns it as an image, not as a file. If you pass a single non-option command line argument to cdrw, and it ends with ``.cd'' or ``.iso'', cdrw will ask if you want it to assume the -i option. This allows you to be careless without wasting cdrws.
