NAME

       bchunk - CD image format conversion from bin/cue to iso/cdr

SYNOPSIS

       bchunk [-v] [-p] [-r] [-w] [-s] <image.bin> <image.cue> <basename>

DESCRIPTION

       bchunk converts a CD image in a ".bin / .cue" format (sometimes ".raw / .cue") to a set of
       .iso and .cdr tracks.

       The bin/cue format is used by some non-Unix cd-writing software, but is not  supported  on
       most other cd-writing programs.

       image.bin  is  the  raw  cd image file. image.cue is the track index file containing track
       types and offsets.  basename is used for the beginning part of the created track files.

       The produced .iso track contains an ISO file system, which can be mounted through  a  loop
       device  on Linux systems, or written on a CD-R using cdrecord.  The .cdr tracks are in the
       native CD audio format. They can be either written on a CD-R  using  cdrecord  -audio,  or
       converted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter) using sox.

       It  is  advisable  to  edit  the  .cue  file  to either MODE2/2352/2048 or MODE2/2352/2324
       depending on whether an ISO filesystem or a VCD  is  desired,  respectively.   The  format
       itself does not contain this feature and in an ambiguous case it can only guess.

OPTIONS

       -v        Makes  binchunker  print  some more unnecessary messages, which should not be of
                 interest for anyone.

       -w        Makes binchunker write audio tracks in WAV format.

       -s        Makes binchunker swap byte order in the samples of audio tracks.

       -p        Makes binchunker go into PSX mode and truncate MODE2/2352 tracks to  2336  bytes
                 at offset 0 instead of normal 2048 bytes at offset 24.

       -r        Makes  binchunker output MODE2/2352 tracks in raw format, from offset 0 for 2352
                 bytes. Good for MPEG/VCD.

FILES

       image.bin
            Raw CD image file

       image.cue
            TOC (Track index, Table Of Contents) file

       *.iso
            Tracks in ISO9660 CD filesystem format.  Can  be  either  written  on  a  CD-R  using
            cdrecord,  or  mounted  (on  Linux  platforms at least) through a loop device ('mount
            track.iso /mnt/cdrom -o loop=/dev/loop0,blocksize=1024').

       *.cdr
            Audio tracks in native CD audio format. They can be either written on  a  CD-R  using
            'cdrecord  -audio',  or  converted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter)
            using sox ('sox track.cdr track.wav').

       *.wav
            Audio tracks in WAV format.
