GNU Compact Disc Input and Control Library
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.
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.
