Description

unieject is a simple commandline tool that allows to eject, close the tray, set the speed, lock and unlock a CD-Rom drive. The main difference from the usual eject tool you find in many distributions is that it uses libcdio and its then portable on non-Linux operating system, as far as libcdio is ported, too.

Actions

The default action is, of course, to eject the CD in the drive, but there are a few extra actions that are present, mainly for compatibility with classic eject command.

--trayclose, -t

Close the tray of the drive instead of ejecting the CD in it.

--traytoggle, -T

If the tray is closed, eject, if it's open, close the tray. This function relies on the drive being able to provide the tray information.

--speed speed, -x speed

Set the maximum speed for the CD-Rom drive, if applicable.

--lock, -l, --unlock, -L

Allows to lock or unlock the tray of the CD-Rom drive to disable and then re-enable the manual eject by button.

Common options

--noop, -n

Don't actually do anything, just print what it would have been done to execute the required command.

--verbose, -V

Show more information while executing the command (increase verbosity).

--quiet, -Q

Hides error while executing the command (decrease verbosity).

--ignore-caps

Ignore the capabilities stated by the device to eject, and try to run the command anyway, useful if a device is known not to report them correctly. On FreeBSD systems this is forced while using ioctl access.

--no-ignore-caps

Don't ignore the capabilities stated by the device (this is the default behavior, this option is used to override unieject.conf(5) file).

--accessmode mode

Change the default access mode for the command. This is used to override the default access mode imposed by libcdio in case it doesn't work correctly. Leave the default if you don't know how to change this.

--debugcdio level

Sets the debug level for libcdio information messages. 0 means the most debug output is generated.

Ejection options

--no-unmount, -m

Don't unmount the device if it's mounted (eject will fail if the device is mounted).

--unmount, -u

Unmount the device if it's mounted (this is the default behavior, this option is used to override unieject.conf(5) file).

--force, -f

Force unmounting of the device if it's mounted, this works only if the operating system supports it.

--no-force

Don't force unmounting of device (this is the default behavior, this option is used to override unieject.conf(5) file).

--umount-wrapper wrapper, -W wrapper

Use the given wrapper to unmount the device instead of library's functions. The device name will be passed right after the wrapper.

Environment

The following environment variables changes the behavior of unieject.

EJECT

Used for compatibility with FreeBSD's eject command; when it's set the default device to eject is take from there instead of libcdio defaults.
