mkisofs and specifying a path-list

mkisofs -R -o -L var_20030831.iso /var
mkisofs -R -o -L home_20030831.iso /home

The above 2 lines work and create 2 seperate .iso files. Fine.

I would like to combine them and there is a switch -path-list, but how do I implement it?

mkisofs -R -o -path-list var_20030831.iso /var;/home
does not work, so do I have to put the paths in a text file



and then my mkisofs command line would be

mkisofs -R -o -path-list = /home/paths.txt -L backup_var_home.iso????

I just cannot work out how to specify the directories in a path list.........

you should be able to do it by simply

mkisofs -R -o nameof.iso /home /var

no ; between the paths; just list the various directories (files) with spaces between
