This program allows you to control the behaviour of your Linux cdrom player. You can control: auto close, auto eject, medium type checking and tray/caddy locking. You can get information on the volume name of CD-ROMs and other data, and you can set the speed of your drive and choose a disc from a jukebox. The source of this package may be an example for cdrom player program developers that wish to exploit the features of the Linux cdrom interface.
