NAME

perlcdio - lower-level wrapper to libcdio, the CD Input and Control library

SYNOPSIS

This is fairly straight-forward wrapper around the C library libcdio. Although this is perfectly usable on its own, it is expected that the Object-Oriented interface Device::Cdio is what most people will want to use.

There are various constants that are defined here.

DESCRIPTION

Encapsulation is done in two parts. The lower-level Perl interface is called perlcdio (this file) and is generated via SWIG.

CONSTANTS

Driver ID's

DRIVER_UNKNOWN

Use when you don't know what kind of driver and you don't care if it is an CD image driver or a real CD-ROM driver. See also DRIVER_DEVICE which doesn't include image drivers.

DRIVER_AIX

Driver for IBM's AIX.

DRIVER_BSDI

Driver for BSDI.

DRIVER_FREEBSD

Driver for Free BSD

DRIVER_LINUX

Driver for GNU/LINUX

DRIVER_SOLARIS

Driver for Solaris

DRIVER_OSX

Driver for Apple's OS X.

DRIVER_WIN32

Driver for Microsoft Windows

DRIVER_CDRDAO

Image Driver for cdrdao

DRIVER_BINCUE

Image driver for CDRWin BIN/CUE

DRIVER_NRG

Image driver for Nero NRG

DRIVER_DEVICE

Use when you don't know what kind of driver but the driver must be a real CD-ROM driver. See also DRIVER_UNKNOWN which includes image drivers.

Real OS driver numbers come before image-disc drivers. Here are constants that can be used in iteration.

MIN_DRIVER

Smallest image or OS driver number.

MIN_DEVICE_DRIVER

Smallest OS device driver number.

MAX_DRIVER

Largest image or OS device driver number.

MAX_DEVICE_DRIVER

Largest device driver number.

Driver Return codes

May driver operations return a status code.

DRIVER_OP_SUCCESS

Driver operation was successful

DRIVER_OP_ERROR

Driver operation had an error of some sort

DRIVER_OP_UNSUPPORTED

Operation is not supported for this driver. For example ejecting a CD from an image driver.

DRIVER_OP_UNINIT

Source is not initialized for this operation.

DRIVER_OP_NOT_PERMITTED

Operation is not permitted

DRIVER_OP_BAD_PARAMETER

An invalid parameter was passed to the routine

DRIVER_OP_BAD_POINTER

A pointer somehow got corrupted.

DRIVER_OP_NO_DRIVER

No driver has been set.

Filesystem type constants

These constants are used in getting drive capabilities:

FS_AUDIO

audio only - not really a filesystem

FS_HIGH_SIERRA

High-Sierra Filesystem

FS_ISO_9660

ISO-9660 filesystem

FS_INTERACTIVE
FS_HFS

file system used on the Macintosh system in MacOS 6 through MacOS 9 and deprecated in OSX

FS_UFS

Generic Unix file system derived from the Berkeley fast file system.

FS_EXT2

EXT2 was the GNU/Linux native filesystem for early kernels. Newer GNU/Linux OS's may use EXT3 which EXT2 with a journal.

FS_ISO_HFS

both HFS & ISO-9660 filesystem

FS_ISO_9660_INTERACTIVE

both CD-RTOS and ISO filesystem

FS_3DO

The 3DO is, technically, a set of specifications created by the 3DO company. These specs are for making a 3DO Interactive Multiplayer which uses a CD-player. Panasonic in the early 90's was the first company to manufacture and market a 3DO player.

FS_XISO

Microsoft X-BOX CD

FS_UDFX
FS_UDF
FS_ISO_UDF
FS_ANAL_XA

eXtended Architecture format

FS_ANAL_MULTISESSION

CD has multisesion

FS_ANAL_PHOTO_CD

FS_ANAL_HIDDEN_TRACK

Hidden track at the beginning the CD

FS_ANAL_CDTV
FS_ANAL_BOOTABLE

CD is bootable

FS_ANAL_VIDEOCD

VCD 1.1

FS_ANAL_ROCKRIDGE

Has Rock Ridge Extensions to ISO 9660

FS_ANAL_JOLIET

Microsoft Joliet extensions to ISO 9660

FS_ANAL_SVCD

Super VCD or Choiji Video CD

FS_ANAL_CVD

Choiji Video CD

FS_ANAL_XISO

XBOX CD determined by some analysis

FS_MATCH_ALL

bitmask which can be used to specify matching any sort of CD

Sector size constants

CD_FRAMESIZE
CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW

Size of a Philip Red book CD-DA block. It is also the maximum CD sector size possible: 2352 bytes.

ISO_BLOCKSIZE

Size of an ISO 9660 block. Also the size of the data portion in CD data reads: 2048 bytes.

M2F2_SECTOR_SIZE

Mode 2 Form 2 Data size: 2328 bytes.

M2RAW_SECTOR_SIZE

Mod1 Form 1 Data size: 2336 bytes.

Reading Modes

READ_MODE_AUDIO

audio mode (CD-DA) read. Blocksize is a multiple of $perlcdio::CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW (2352) bytes.

READ_MODE_M1F1

Mode 1 Form 1 read. Blocksize is a multiple of $perlcdio::CD_FRAMESIZE (2048) bytes.

READ_MODE_M1F2

Mode 1 Form 2 read. Blocksize is a multiple of $perlcdio::M2RAW_SECTIOR_SIZE (2336) bytes.

READ_MODE_M2F1

Mode 2 Form 1 read. Blocksize is a multiple of $perlcdio::CD_FRAMESIZE (2048) bytes.

READ_MODE_M2F2

Mode 2 Form 1 read. Blocksize is a multiple of (2328) bytes.

Miscellaneous

VERSION_NUM

libcdio version that is getting used

INVALID_LBA

Canonical value used for an invalid LBA.

INVALID_LSN

Canonical value used for an invalid LSN.

INVALID_TRACK

Canonical value used for an invalid track number. (Valid range is 0 to 99.)

LEADOUT_TRACK

Canonical value for the "leadout" or track just after the last track. So again this value is outside the range 0 to 99. The leadout track is often used to get the last LSN or LBA. The libcdio routines also allow the last actual track plus one as a synonym for the leadout track.

METHODS

cdio_version

    perlcdio::cdio_version

Returns the libcdio version string Device::Cdio is currently linked with.

this

This seems to be an artifact of SWIG.
