bchunk - CD image format conversion from bin/cue to iso/cdr SYNOPSIS
bchunk [-v] [-p] [-r] [-w] [-s] <image.bin> <image.cue> <basename> DESCRIPTION
bchunk converts a CD image in a ".bin / .cue" format (sometimes ".raw / .cue") to a set of .iso and .cdr tracks. The bin/cue format is used by some non-Unix cd-writing software, but is not supported on most other cd-writing programs. image.bin is the raw cd image file. image.cue is the track index file containing track types and offsets. basename is used for the begin- ning part of the created track files. The produced .iso track contains an ISO file system, which can be mounted through a loop device on Linux systems, or written on a CD-R using cdrecord. The .cdr tracks are in the native CD audio format. They can be either written on a CD-R using cdrecord -audio, or con- verted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter) using sox. The output type depends on the input type (data is just copied). If the input is in ISO format, the output will be. On the other hand, if the input is raw audio data, the output will be CDR or WAV (the latter if -w is given). It is advisable to edit the .cue file to either MODE2/2352/2048 or MODE2/2352/2324 depending on whether an ISO filesystem or a VCD is desired, respectively. The format itself does not contain this feature and in an ambiguous case it can only guess. OPTIONS
-v Makes binchunker print some more unnecessary messages, which should not be of interest for anyone. -w Makes binchunker write audio tracks in WAV format. -s Makes binchunker swap byte order in the samples of audio tracks. -p Makes binchunker go into PSX mode and truncate MODE2/2352 tracks to 2336 bytes at offset 0 instead of normal 2048 bytes at offset 24. Use this option if input is in PSX mode. -r Makes binchunker output MODE2/2352 tracks in raw format, from offset 0 for 2352 bytes. Good for MPEG/VCD. Use this option if input is in raw format. FILES
image.bin Raw CD image file image.cue TOC (Track index, Table Of Contents) file *.iso Tracks in ISO9660 CD filesystem format. Can be either written on a CD-R using cdrecord, or mounted (on Linux platforms at least) through a loop device ('mount track.iso /mnt/cdrom -o loop=/dev/loop0,blocksize=1024'). *.cdr Audio tracks in native CD audio format. They can be either written on a CD-R using 'cdrecord -audio', or converted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter) using sox ('sox track.cdr track.wav'). *.wav Audio tracks in WAV format.

cuebreakpoints - report track breakpoints from a CUE or TOC file SYNOPSIS
cuebreakpoints [ { -i format | --input-format=format } { --append-gaps | --prepend-gaps | --split-gaps } ] [ file ... ] cuebreakpoints --help DESCRIPTION
cuebreakpoints reports the track breakpoints found in CUE and TOC files, which are typically created by compact disc ripping software. The breakpoints are in a format usable by shnsplit (part of the shntool package). Three approaches to track pregaps are availabe: append (to previous track), prepend (to succeeding track), and split (from both preceding and succeeding tracks). The split approach can result in up to twice as many breakpoints being reported as there are tracks on the disc. The first track's pregap cannot be appended to the previous track, so it is prefixed to the track in both append and prepend modes. If you want the track without it, use the --split-gaps option. If no filenames are specified, cuebreakpoints reads from standard input, and an input format option must be specified. If one or more filenames is provided, but the input format option is not specified, the input format will be guessed based on each file's suffix (e.g., .cue or .toc). This heuristic is case-insensitive. OPTIONS
-h, --help displays a usage message and exits. -i format, --input-format=format sets the expected format of the input file(s) to format, which must be either cue or toc. --append-gaps appends pregaps to the end of the previous track. This is the default. --prepend-gaps prefixes pregaps to the beginning of each subsequent track. --split-gaps separates pregaps from both the preceding and succeeding tracks. If more than one of --append-gaps, --prepend-gaps, and --split-gaps are specified, all except the last encountered are ignored. EXIT STATUS
cuebreakpoints exits with status zero if it successfully generates a report for each input file, and nonzero if there were problems. AUTHOR
