"readcd -fulltoc" - Reading TOC with "cdrtools"

This section provides a tutorial on how to read TOC (Table Of Contents) with 'readcd -fulltoc'.

The "cdrtools" package has a nice tool called "readcd" that can be used to read the TOC (Table Of Contents) from any kind of CD. See other section of this book to install "cdrtools".

If you run the "readcd" command with the "-fulltoc" option, you will get the content of TOC from the CD. Try this command with no CD in the CD drive first:
