ISO Editor - opinions needed


Greetings

I am planning to make an iso editor. You know, like UltraISO or ISOBuster on windows, so you can extract files and add new files, stuf like that.

The time I've allocated for this project is until next summer, one year. I think that's reasonable considering the ammount of research necessary (i'm a student Smile)

The project webpage (not worth looking at) is here: littlesvr.ca/ised/

I've definitely decided to use GTK for the windowing, the reasons are many and complicated so I won't bore you with the details.

I would really appreciate any input on what the features should be. What do you use such a tool for? What is more and what is less important?

TIA

This would be a GREAT project for folks who like to remaster their live cds, or make their own live cd's.
The one thing I can think of would be a one click generation of the isoLinux bootable scripts framework

Good Luck with this, and keep us posted!

Ummm, there's not really a market for this on Linux, as you can mount ISO images directly.
e.g. (assuming an ISO file in the current directory called iso.iso:
Code:
mkdir isodir
mount -o loop -t iso9660 iso.iso isodir/
You can then use the filemanager of your choice to add and delete files from isodir/ .

Damn.
