===== What is xorriso dialog mode useful for ? ===== #xorriso_dialog_mode
Dialog mode is initiated if -dialog "on" is among the program arguments.
It can be used to inspect and exploit existing ISO 9660 images or
to explore xorriso's behavior in order to develop the command sequence
for a batch run.
Frontend programmers may fork xorriso initiating a xorriso dialog session
(-dialog "on" -use_readline "off" -pkt_output "on" -mark "done"),
and interact with it from their own program via pipes connected to
xorriso's stdin and stdout. This is more efficient than forking xorriso
every now and then to perform various commands in order to complete
complex tasks like image size prediction.
