       cdrwtool - perform various actions on a CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R

       cdrwtool -d device -i | -g

       cdrwtool -d device -s [ write-parameters ]

       cdrwtool -d device -q [ write-parameters ]

       cdrwtool -d device -m offset [ write-parameters ]

       cdwrtool -d device -u blocks [ write-parameters ]

       cdrwtool -d device -b b_mode [ write-parameters ]

       cdrwtool -d device -c blocks [ write-parameters ]

       cdwrtool -d device -f filename [ write-parameters ]

       cdwrtool -d device -r track [ write-parameters ]

       cdrwtool -h

       The cdwrtool command can perform certain actions on a CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD-R device. Mainly
       these are blanking the media, formating it for use with the packet-cd device,  and  apply-
       ing an UDF filesystem.

       The most common usage is probably the `quick setup' option:

	      cdrwtool -d device -q

       which  will  blank  the	disc,  format it as one large track, and write the UDF filesystem

       Other options get and set various parameters of how the device is set up, and provide  for
       different offsets, modes and settings from the defaults.

       The usefulness of most of the options is not explained.

       Main directives:

       -d device
	      Specify the device to use. eg. /dev/sr0

       -i     Print disc track info.

       -g     Print write parameters.

       -u length
	      Make a UDF filesystem using length number of blocks.

       -m offset
	      Format the disc at offset number of blocks.

       -b mode
	      Blank the disk using a mode of `full' or `fast'.

       -f filename
	      Write file.

       -c track
	      Close track.

       -r track
	      Reserve track.

       -z length
	      Fixed packet length.

       -s     Set write parameters determined by -l, -w, and -p options for the disc.

       -v version
	      Specify  the  udf  revision to use. Valid revisions are 0x0201, 0x0200, 0x0150, and
	      0x0102. If omitted, mkudffs udf-version is 0x0150.

       -h     Prints a sparse help message.

       Write parameters:

       -t speed
	      Set write speed. (Defaults to 12x ?)

       -l type
	      Set multi-session field. Either `0', `1', or `3', corresponding to `No B0  pointer.
	      Next  Session  not allowed', `B0 pointer = FF:FF:FF. Next session not allowed', and
	      `Next session allowed. B0 pointer = next possible program area' respectively.

       -w mode
	      Set write mode. Either `mode1' or `mode2'.

       -p type
	      Set packet type. Either `0' or `1', corresponding  to  variable  and  fixed  packet
	      sizes respectively.

       -o offset
	      Set write offset.
