    iso9660 creation/reading/writing

    I'm trying to learn how to create, read, and write to iso9660 filesystems. I've searched google for a very long time but all it brings up are cd burning programs. Any know a good resource for it?

    Do you want to modify indivudual files, the ISO itself, or burn them? I'd say the easiest way for any of these three is running command line apps from within your app.

    If you just want to modify files on the iso, I'd recommend mounting it (using the "mount" command) to a temporary directory.

    If you want to read it off a cdrom, use the "dd" command, if you want to burn it, use "cdrecord"

    Maybe i'm missing the obvious.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    CrazyNorman: I want to do anything I can with the ISO but main just create them. As for running other programs thats what I wanted to avoid as I wanted to make my own program.

    My first Google hit was a Wikipedia entry, under which the ECMA link was listed.
