SYNOPSIS

cdappend [ -1, --single ] [ -b, --blank ] [ -h, --help ] [ -n, --name=NAME ] [ -r, --recycle ] [ -s, --speed=SPEED ] [ -S, --cdsize=SIZE ] [ -t, --test ] [ -V, --version ] [ -w, --workdir=PATH ] DEVICE

OPTIONS

-1, --single
  Burn the image in single session mode. This means that you will not be able to append any more images to this disk until the CD is blanked (if it’s a CD-RW).
-b, --blank
  Blank disk before writing. This option may not be used in conjunction with --recycle (-r).
-h, --help
  Show usage message and quit.
-n, --name=NAME
  Set the filename to be used on the CD. The default filename is ’cdbkup’.
-r, --recycle
  If the image is too large to fit in the available space on the disk, but it will still fit on a blank disk, the CD is blanked. This option conflicts with --blank.
-s, --speed=SPEED
  Set the burn speed. The default is 2.
-S, --cdsize=SIZE
  Specify the size of the output medium in bytes. Normally, cdappend attempts to autodetect the size of the disk and uses a default of 650,000,000 bytes if autodetection fails. This option disables autodetection.
-t, --test
  Do not use the CD-ROM burner. In this mode, the backup proceeds normally, except that the backup file is saved as an ISO image in the current directory instead of being burned onto a CD-R(W). If -t is used, the following options are ignored: -1, -b, -r, -s.

The --cdsize option can be used in conjunction with --test to specify the maximum size of the ISO image.

-V, --version
  Print the version number and exit.
-w, --workdir=PATH
  Set the working directory as specified. If the directory doesn’t exist, it will be created.

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the cdappend backup utility.

CDAppend copies its standard input into a file on the CD-R(W) currently in the drive. It is non-interactive. If the image will not fit on the disk, it prints an error and returns a non-zero status code.

DEVICES

The device specified on the command line is the SCSI device for the CD-ROM burner. For more information, see cdrecord (1).
