cd_type(3)						     Library Functions Manual							cd_type(3)

NAME
cd_type - Determines the type of file system recorded on a CD-ROM LIBRARY
Rock Ridge and X/Open Extensions to the CDFS library (libcdrom.so, libcdrom.a) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/cdrom.h> int cd_type ( char *path ); PARAMETERS
Points to a pathname naming a file or directory within the CD-ROM File System hierarchy, or to a pathname naming the block special file for the CD-ROM File System. DESCRIPTION
The cd_type routine determines the type of file system recorded on the CD-ROM pointed to by *path. RETURN VALUES
If successful, the function returns one of the following values, which are defined in cdfs/xcdr.h, an include file that is called into sys/cdrom.h: {CD_ISO9660} CD-ROM is recorded according to ISO 9660. {CD_HSG} CD-ROM is recorded according to High Sierra Group. {CD_RRIP} CD-ROM is recorded according to ISO 9660 with the Rock Ridge Extension. If unsuccessful, the integer -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error. ERRORS
The function will fail if: Search permission is denied for a directory in *path or read and execute permission are denied for the named file, or read permission is denied on the block special file pointed to by *path. The address of *path is invalid. A signal was caught during execution of the function. The argument *path points to a file or directory that is not within the CD-ROM file hierarchy. {OPEN_MAX} file descriptors are currently open in the calling process. [Tru64 UNIX] Either the OPEN_MAX value or the per-process soft descriptor limit is checked. The length of the *path string exceeds {PATH_MAX}, or a pathname component is longer than {NAME_MAX} while {_POSIX_NO_TRUNC} is in effect. The system file table is full. A component of *path does not exist, or the *path argument points to an empty string. A component of the *path prefix is not a directory. The CD-ROM is not in the drive, or a read error occurred. The named file is a block special file and the device associated with the special file does not exist. RELATED INFORMATION

cd_pvd(3)						     Library Functions Manual							 cd_pvd(3)

NAME
cd_pvd, cd_cpvd - Reads the Primary Volume Descriptor from a CD-ROM LIBRARY
Rock Ridge and X/Open Extensions to the CDFS library (libcdrom.so, libcdrom.a) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/cdrom.h> int cd_pvd ( char *path, struct iso9660_pvd *pvd ); int cd_cpvd ( char *path, char *addr ); PARAMETERS
Points to a pathname that names a file or directory within a CD-ROM File System hierarchy, or to a block-special file for a CD-ROM File System. Points to the iso9660_pvd structure that holds the contents of the Primary Volume Descriptor from the CD-ROM. The iso9660_pvd structure is defined in cdfs/xcdr.h, an include file that is called into sys/cdrom.h Points to the address to which the Primary Volume Descriptor on the CD-ROM is copied. DESCRIPTION
The function cd_pvd fills the *pvd structure with the contents of the Primary Volume Descriptor from the CD-ROM. To execute this function successfully, the user must have read or execute permission for the file or directory pointed to by *path The function cd_cpvd copies the complete Primary Volume Descriptor that is recorded on the CD-ROM to the address pointed to by *addr. The user must allocate {CD_PVDLEN} bytes for the Primary Volume Descriptor. The variable {CD_PVDLEN} is defined in cdfs/xcdr.h, an include file that is called into sys/cdrom.h. RETURN VALUES
If successful, the value zero is returned. If unsuccessful, the integer -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error. ERRORS
The function will fail if: Search permission is denied for a directory in *path or read permission is denied for the file, directory, or block special file pointed to by *path. The address of *path or *pvd is invalid. A signal was caught during execution of the function. The argument *path points to a file or directory that is not within the CD-ROM file hierarchy. The named file is a block special file and the CD-ROM is not recorded according to the ISO 9660 standard. {OPEN_MAX} file descriptors are currently open in the calling process. [Tru64 UNIX] Either the OPEN_MAX value or the per-process soft descriptor limit is checked. The length of the *path string exceeds {PATH_MAX}, or a pathname component is longer than {NAME_MAX} while {_POSIX_NO_TRUNC} is in effect. The system file table is full. A component of *path does not exist, or the *path argument points to an empty string. A component of the *path prefix is not a directory. The CD-ROM is not in the drive, or a read error occurred. The named file is a block-special file and the device associated with the file does not exist. RELATED INFORMATION
