Projects / cdctl


cdctl is a program similar to eject. Like eject, it can eject your CD-ROM/DVD drive, but it does a whole lot more. Cdctl provides a user interface to the 2.2 kernel's uniform cdrom driver's ioctl calls, and most 2.0 cdrom drivers (ide-cd and scsi). Cdctl is also capable of doing everything a regular console cd player can as well as drive capability interrogation, autoeject setting, maximum/mininum speed cap setting, disc-changer disc selection, disc status readback, MCN querying, table of contents header readback, track header readback, and much more.
