makevcd - Create and burn an (S)VCD image from an XML description file
makevcd takes an XML file (which may be generated by makexml(1)) and
creates a cue/bin (S)VCD image. It can also burn (S)VCD discs.
To ensure that this script successfully executes, please run it from a
directory with plenty of free space. "Plenty" would be about 1 GB.
Running this program may slow down your other applications, due to
intense disk activity.
makevcd [OPTIONS] VCDIMAGER.xml
makevcd -burn MyDisc.xml
-overwrite (default off -- nothing is overwritten)
Overwrite any existing cue/bin files matching VCDIMAGER.xml.
Useful if you modified the xml file and wish to re-image or burn
the new (S)VCD.
-burn (default off -- no images are burned)
Burn the (S)VCD described by VCDIMAGER.xml.
-device DEVICE (default /dev/cdrw)
Burn the disc image to DEVICE, the Linux device filesystem name
of your CD-recorder. Common examples might be /dev/cdrw,
/dev/scd1, and /dev/hdc.
-speed NUM (default 12)
Burn the disc at speed NUM.
-quiet Limit output to essential messages.
makevcd -burn -device /dev/cdrw foo.xml
Create the (S)VCD image and burn it to /dev/cdrw. makevcd will
automatically call vcdxbuild to make the image. If there is an
existing image, it will be burned.
makevcd -overwrite foo.xml
Create the (S)VCD image and exit without burning. If the image
already exists, then it is removed before re-imaging.
