       k3b - KDE CD burning program


       k3b [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [File]


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the  k3b KDE Application.  This
       manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux  distribution  because
       the original program does not have a manual page.

       K3b  is  a  CD burning program that has two aims: usability and as many
       features as possible.

       This program is part of the official KDE extra gear #1 module.
