What is it

   This is a graphical front-end for the excelent programs 'mkisofs' and
   'cdrecord'.
   It can also burn mp3 to cd audio.
   
   It's good for:
     * Avoiding coasters due to command-line mistakes
     * Eliminating the tedium of consulting documentation
     * Feeling more secure in a correct set of options
     * Being lazy
       
   With the (in)frequency with which I burn CDs, I didn't like poring
   over man pages for half an hour each time to make sure I got every
   last option right. With this program, I don't have that problem.

Version History

   Version 1.02 added ability to burn audio from MP3 files, and better
   help.
   Version 1.01 added support for 8x drives.
   Version 1.00 added a directory browser and will read audio tracks
   elsewhere from the current directory.
   Version 0.99 added padding options and information on audio formats.
   Version 0.98 added more help text and rearanged things a bit.
   Version 0.97 was a bug-fix.
   Version 0.96 added cdrw blanking and CD data reading.
   Version 0.95 added bootable CD support and a few extra write options.
   Version 0.9 was the original release.

Where do I get it

   As of right now, you can find version 1.02 at
   [1]http://www.jump.net/~brooke/cdrtoast/download
   
   Mirrors will be forthcoming.

Is it really that small?

   Because this is done in the Tk scripting language, the whole program
   is only about 20 K.

What else do I need?

   You need Tk, but that comes with most distributions. If yours doesn't
   have Tk, find it at [1]http://www.scriptics.com
   
   You will need 'mkisofs' and 'cdrecord', which may be a part of your
   distribution or you may need to get them from te links below:
   
   [2]mkisofs
   [3]cdrecord [4](homepage)
   
   You will probably also want [5]cdparanoia, the best program for
   ripping audio from CDs. CDR-Toaster relies on cdparanoia to rip audio.
   
   You MAY want [6]SoX - Sound eXchange and [7]mpg123 for the direct
   recording of MP3 files to audio CDs, but they're quite optional.

I'm new - How do I run this?

   If you have just downloaded this program, you'll have to make it
   executable. You can do this as follows:
   
     chmod +x cdrtoaster
     
   Then you can run cdrtoaster simply by typing its name. You will need
   Tk installed, but you probably have that. To find your installation,
   type:
   
     which wish
     
   If it gives you a pathname like /usr/bin/wish you're fine. If you see
   "no wish in ...." then you'll have to install Tk.
   
   If your "wish" does not live at /usr/bin/wish then alter the first
   line of cdrtoaster to reflect your wish location.

How can I contribute?

   CDR-Toaster is availible under the GNU General Public License version
   2.0 or later (at your option). This license can be found at
   [1]http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html
   
   I could use some background colors and whatnot for the web page.
   
   I want to add decent multisession support. Also on the list is better
   data track layout control.
   
   If you see other areas where this program could be improved, tell me.
