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.

       The  output  type depends on the input type (data is just copied).  If the input is in ISO
       format, the output will be. On the other hand, if the input is raw audio data, the  output
       will be CDR or WAV (the latter if ‐w is given).

       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.  Use this option if input
                 is in PSX mode.

       -r        Makes binchunker output MODE2/2352 tracks in raw format, from offset 0 for  2352
                 bytes. Good for MPEG/VCD. Use this option if input is in raw format.

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.
