|Full description=This library is to encapsulate CD-ROM reading and control. Applications wishing to be oblivious of the OS- and device-dependant properties of a CD-ROM can use this library. Some support for disk image types like BIN/CUE and NRG is available, so applications that use this library also have the ability to read disc images as though they were CD's. Immediate uses are VCDImager, a navigation-capable Video CD plugin and CD-DA plugin for the media player xine. A sample utility, cdinfo, is included which displays CD info. If libcddb (http://libcddb.sourceforge.net) is available, the cdinfo program will display CDDB matches on CD-DA discs.

GNU Compact Disc Input and Control Library

https://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio/
The libcdio package contains a library for CD-ROM and CD image access. Applications wishing to be oblivious of the OS- and device-dependent properties of a CD-ROM or of the specific details of various CD-image formats may benefit from using this library.

The library is written in C, however there are OO C++, Perl, Python and Ruby wrappers to interface to the library. However C++ is the only one that is bundled with this package, and the interfaces provide only a subset of the full features of the library.

Documentation

Documentation

Also included in the libcdio package are a number of utility programs:

  • cd-info, displays CD information ;
  • cd-drive, shows what drivers are available and some basic properties of cd-drives attached to the system ;
  • cd-read, performs low-level block reading of a CD or CD image ;
  • iso-info, displays ISO-9660 information from an ISO-9660 image ;
  • iso-read, extracts files from an ISO-9660 image ;
  • cd-paranoia - port of cdparanoia (CD-DA jitter and error correction) using libcdio back-end CD-reading.
