Linux command line utility to read info from an iso?


I am new to this forum so please go easy on me
I am trying to find a linux cmd line utility that will read info from an iso file. The problem I have is that the file is always corrupt so I cannot mount it because I only have around 100k of it but all I need is to extract the headers of what the iso contains.

Anyone got any ideas on how I can achieve this I have searched the internet with no look at all.

Code:
iso-info -i file.iso
on my system it is provided by the libcdio package. Try iso-info --help for available options. It comes with its companion iso-read to extract files from the iso image. Hope this helps.
