isosize [-x] [-d ] ...
This command outputs the length of an iso9660 file system that is con
tained in given file. That file may be a normal file or a block device
(e.g. /dev/hdd or /dev/sr0). In the absence of any switches (or errors)
it will output the size of the iso9660 file system in bytes. This can
now be a large number (> > 4 GB).
-x output in humanly readable form the block count and the block
size. Output uses the term "sectors" for "blocks".
only has affect when "-x" is not given. The number output (if no
errors) is the iso9660 file size in bytes divided by . So
if is the block size then the output number will be the
The size of the file (or block device) holding a iso9660 file system
can be marginally larger than the actual size of the iso9660 file sys
tem. One reason for this is that cd writers are allowed to add "run
out" sectors at the end of a iso9660 image.
