xorrisofs is actually a command mode of program @strong{xorriso},
which gets entered either by xorriso command "-as mkisofs" or by
starting the program by one of the names "xorrisofs", "mkisofs",
"genisoimage", or "genisofs".
@*
This command mode can be left by argument "@minus{}@minus{}" which leads
to generic xorriso command mode. See @strong{man xorriso} for its description.

xorriso performs image reading and writing by help of libburn, which is
mainly intended for optical drives, but also operates on all POSIX
file types except directories.
@*
The program messages call any file a "drive". File types which are not
supported for reading are reported as "blank". The reported free media
space may be quite fictional.
@*
Nevertheless xorrisofs does not operate directly on optical drives,
but rather forces libburn to regard them as general device files.
So for writing of sequential optical media (CD, DVD-R, DVD+R, BD-R)
one will have to use a burn program. E.g the cdrecord emulation of xorriso.
