The non-Unix version of BinChunker has been obsoleted by FireBurner, which can be found at www.fireburner.com. FireBurner does a lot more than BinChunker did, but can be used to do exactly the same even without a burner device installed. Thanks go to Bob Marietta, the author of BinChunker, for the extensive help, documentation and letting me look at his Pascal/Delphi source code! Colas Nahaboo <Colas@Nahaboo.com> and Godmar Back <email@example.com> added support for MODE2/2352 ISO data tracks in bchunk 1.1.0. Matthew Green implemented the -r option for raw MODE2/2352 exctraction for bchunk 1.2.0. --- What on earth is this stuff: binchunker converts a CD image in a ".bin / .cue" format (sometimes ".raw / .cue") to a set of .iso and .cdr tracks. The bin/cue format is used by some non-Unix cd-writing software, but is not supported on most other cd-writing programs. The .iso track contains an ISO file system, which can be mounted through a loop device on Linux systems ('mount track.iso /mnt/cdrom -o loop=/dev/loop0,blocksize=1024'), or written on a CD-R using cdrecord. The .cdr tracks are in the native CD audio format. They can be either written on a CD-R using cdrecord -audio, or converted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter) using sox ('sox track.cdr track.wav'). Audio tracks can be written in WAV format by using the -w switch. The output type depends on the input type (data is just copied). If the input is in ISO format, the output will be. On the other hand, if the input is raw audio data, the output will be CDR or WAV (the latter if -w is given). --- How to install this stuff: $ gzip -d -c bchunk-1.2.2.tar.gz | tar xvf - $ cd bchunk-1.2.2 $ make # make install If your system does not have GCC installed, edit Makefile, uncommenting the CC lines. If your system does not ship with a BSD-style 'install' program and the make install fails, copy the resulting 'bchunk' binary to your favourite directory in your $PATH. /usr/local/bin is a good one. The manual page 'bchunk.1' should go to /usr/local/man/man1 for example. bchunk has been successfully compiled on the following platforms: Linux 2.0, i686, glibc 2.0.7, gcc 184.108.40.206 (RedHat 5.1) Linux 2.2, i686, glibc 2.1.1, egcs 1.1.2 (RedHat 6.0) Linux 2.4, i686, glibc 2.2, gcc-2.96 (RedHat 7.0) Solaris 2.5.1, SPARC, gcc 2.7.2 Solaris 2.6, SPARC, gcc 2.8.1 Digital Unix 4.0c, Alpha, DEC C V5.2-033 SGI IRIX 6.5.7m, MIPS R4600 IP22, gcc 2.95.2 Mac OS X 10.1.4, gcc 2.95.2 It should be ANSI enough to compile on any decent system. (The HP-UX bundled compiler is not decent.) --- How to use this stuff: bchunk [-v] [-p (PSX)] [-r (raw)] [-w (wav)] [-s (swabaudio)] <image.bin> <image.cue> <basename> image.bin is the raw cd image file. image.cue is the track index file containing track types and offsets. basename is used for the beginning part of the created track files. The -v flag makes binchunker print some more unnecessary messages, which should not be of interest for anyone. The -p flag makes binchunker go into PSX mode and truncate MODE2/2352 tracks to 2336 bytes at offset 0 instead of normal 2048 bytes at offset 24. The -r flag makes binchunker output MODE2/2352 tracks in raw format, from offset 0 for 2352 bytes. Good for MPEG/VCD. The -p and -r flags works only with MODE2/2352 input (if input is in PSX mode pass -p flag or if it is in raw format pass -r flag). The -w flag makes binchunker write audio tracks in WAV format. The -s flag makes binchunker swap byte order in the samples of the audio tracks. If the audio sounds like loud static noise, try this.
