command line CDR / copy file


does anyone know how to make copies of individual files using the command line interface for a cd writer? i can make .iso with no problem but have yet to find an explanation of how to make a simple copy of a file (like for back up purposes). i'm using redhat 7.3 if that helps.

Hi and Yes, i do remember them, take a look at
mkisofs (man mkisofs )
par example;

mkisofs -v -o gerrit.iso -R -J /home/gerrit/
this makes an iso containing my home

and cdrecord (man cdrecord) will use that;
cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=8 -eject gerrit.iso
the dev= and speed= ,well adapt that for own situation
cdrecord -scanbus spits out the used device

good luck

thanks for your suggestion MrGee. The mkisofs and cdrcord command worked without a hitch. I'll have to give jetblack's suggestion a try some other time.
