‘burn’ is a command-line tool to create audio discs from MP3, Ogg
Vorbis, or WAV files, to backup data files, to create discs from
ISO-9660 images, and to copy discs on-the-fly. It performs any of its
functions in a single command, without requiring preparatory
filesystem creation, etc.
The program can compute if there is necessary free space for
temporary files (images and audio files), warn if size is bigger than
disc capacity, and manage multisession discs.
