v1.0 - A shell script that automagically makes .iso images to burn to CD.

Mar 17, 2016

From time to time I find the need to build .iso images of files that have to be burned to CD-ROM disks for storage or transport. However, the
CDRtools, while powerful, can be unweildly to work with because of the large number of command line options that each one offers. They can be downright confusing to keep straight in a hurry, which is why I put the most commonly used options for mkisofs into a simple shell script to help speed up the process. You run it like so:

./ /path/to/put/new_iso_image.iso /path/to/files_to_burn

To display the online help, give the script the command line switch --help, like any modern GNU-style utility.

The script is licensed under the GPLv2. If this script blows your box up or trashes your data, it isn't my fault.
