Synopsis

    cdrdao command [options]toc-file

Write all content specified in description file toc-file to a CD-R disk drive in one step. This is called disk-at-once (DAO) mode , as opposed to the more commonly used track-at-once (TAO) mode . DAO mode allows you to change the length of gaps between tracks and define data to be written in these gaps (like hidden bonus tracks or track intros). The toc-file can be created by hand or generated from an existing CD using cdrdao's read-toc command. A cue file, as generated by other audio programs, can be used instead of a TOC file. The file format for TOC files is discussed at length in the cdrdao manpage.

URL: http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/. (cdrdao doesn't come with Fedora Core 3, apparently because cdrecord can also do DAO recording.)

msinfo
