libcdio: A CD-ROM reading and control library1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

This library is to encapsulate CD-ROM reading and control. Applications wishing to be oblivious of the OS- and device-dependant properties of a CD-ROM can use this library. Some support for disk image types like BIN/CUE and NRG is available, so applications that use this library also have the ability to read disc images as though they were CD's.

Immediate uses are VCDImager, a navigation-capable Video CD plugin and CD-DA plugin for the media player xine. A sample utility, cdinfo, is included which displays CD info. If libcddb ( is available, the cdinfo program will display CDDB matches on CD-DA discs.
