MOUNT_CD9660(8) 		   BSD System Manager's Manual			  MOUNT_CD9660(8)

NAME
     mount_cd9660 -- mount an ISO-9660 filesystem

SYNOPSIS
     mount_cd9660 [-egjr] [-o options] [-s startsector] special | node

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_cd9660 command attaches the ISO-9660 filesystem residing on the device special to
     the global filesystem namespace at the location indicated by node.  This command is normally
     executed by mount(8) at boot time.

     The options are as follows:

     -e      Enable the use of extended attributes.

     -g      Do not strip version numbers on files.  (By default, if there are files with differ-
	     ent version numbers on the disk, only the last one will be listed.)  In either case,
	     files may be opened without explicitly stating a version number.

     -j      Do not use any Joliet extensions included in the filesystem.

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of
	     options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.

     -r      Do not use any Rockridge extensions included in the filesystem.

     -s startsector
	     Start the filesystem at startsector.  Normally, if the underlying device is a CD-ROM
	     drive, mount_cd9660 will try to figure out the last track from the CD-ROM containing
	     data, and start the filesystem there.  If the device is not a CD-ROM, or the table
	     of contents cannot be examined, the filesystem will be started at sector 0.  This
	     option can be used to override the behaviour.  Note that startsector is measured in
	     CD-ROM blocks, with 2048 bytes each.

SEE ALSO
     mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

BUGS
     POSIX device node mapping is currently not supported.

     Version numbers are not stripped if Rockridge extensions are in use.  In this case, access-
     ing files that don't have Rockridge names without version numbers gets the one with the low-
     est version number and not the one with the highest.

     There is no ECMA support.

HISTORY
     The mount_cd9660 utility first appeared 4.4BSD.
