BCHUNK(1)		    General Commands Manual		     BCHUNK(1)

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  con-
       verted 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  de-
       sired,  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.
