other CD layout which does not entirely consist of ISO-9660 sessions.
xorriso is a command line application of libisoburn, libisofs, and libburn.
xorriso is an application of libisoburn, libisofs, and libburn, which reads
commands from program arguments, files, stdin, or readline.
Its features are also available via a C language API of libisoburn.
Currently they are fully supported on Linux with kernels >= 2.4,
on FreeBSD with ATAPI/CAM support enabled in the kernel, see atapicam(4),

xorriso C language API
Actually the dynamically linked xorriso binary is only a small start program
for the xorriso API that is implemented inside libisoburn.
There are API calls for command readers and interpreters, and there are
API calls for each single command of xorriso.
Interested programmers should have a look into the API definition at
xorriso/xorriso.h
and the start program
xorriso/xorriso_main.c
The header file xorriso.h gets installed suitable for
#include <libisoburn/xorriso.h>
So after installation of a binary libisoburn package you may find it e.g. as
/usr/local/include/libisoburn/xorriso.h
Drives and Disk File Objects
The user of libisoburn applications needs rw-permission for the CD/DVD/BD
drives which shall be used, even if only reading is intended.
A list of rw-accessible drives can be obtained by
xorriso -devices
resp. by xorriso API call
Xorriso_option_devices()
resp. by libburn API call
burn_drive_scan()
