CDROM(3)                   Library Functions Manual                   CDROM(3)



NAME
       cdrom - CD-ROM disk interface

SYNOPSIS
       bind -a #Rn /dev

       /dev/cdn

       bind -a #m /dev

       /dev/cd
       /dev/cdctl

DESCRIPTION
       The  SCSI CD-ROM disk interface (#R) serves a one-level directory for a
       SCSI target holding a CD-ROM drive.  Each drive  is  represented  as  a
       single  file  named  #Rn/cdn, where n is the target number.  A separate
       attach is necessary for each drive.

       On PCs, Panasonic, Matsushita, and Mitsumi CD-ROM drives connected to a
       Sound  Blaster  16,  Pro,  MCD,  or  ACX card are also supported.  This
       interface (#m) device serves a data file, #m/cd, and  a  control  file,
       #m/cdctl.   The control file is read-only and contains a string stating
       the type of drive and its port number.  The driver determines the  type
       of CD-ROM drive by a parameter in plan9.ini; see plan9.ini(8).
