cdxar - Read the Extended Attribute Record from a CD-ROM
/usr/bin/cdxar [-s number] [-b] file
Specifies the File Section for which the XAR is to be
read. The numbering starts with one and number can be any
whole number. If this option is not used, the last file
section of the named file is assumed. Copies the entire
XAR from a CD-ROM in binary format to standard output.
Names a file or directory within the CD-ROM file hierarchy
of a mounted CD-ROM File System.
The cdxar command accesses the Extended Attribute Record
(XAR) associated with the File Section of a file or directory
and lists its contents on standard output.
The output is formatted in a table that contains the name
of each field of the XAR and the corresponding contents of
the entry as recorded on the CD-ROM. Note that the Application
Use Field and the Escape Sequences are not listed
because they may contain non-printable characters.
If the command is used without the -b option, only the
fixed part of the XAR is copied from the CD-ROM.
Users must have read permission for file in order to execute
The following exit values are returned: The command was
successful. The named file was not found, or was not
within the CD-ROM hierarchy, or access permission was
denied. The File Section indicated by -s does not exist.
The File Section indicated by -s has no XAR. The File
Section indicated by -s is not on the mounted CD-ROM.
