Re: Oddness piping mkisofs into recent cdrecord versions

tsize is clearly a problem, since it requires running the mkisofs twice
to get the size, and -tao doesn't seem to work, for some reason cdrecord
thinks the TAO capability is missing. As noted, growisofs has no such
problem, and can write single or multi-session to this device, but will
only do DVD, which is slightly more expensive for media.

Make note that the 's' after the tsize cmd is correct, check the man
page for this flag..
The issue is that the mkisofs is running on another machine over a
network. I want to burn a CD, and it is really not desirable to jump
through hoops to do so, nor to try and get the tsize= through reliably.
A drawback to the recording modes or ISO filesystem characteristics. As
noted an oddity rather than a bug.
eg: mkisofs file.iso | cdrecord -data tsize=`mkisofs -print-size
-quiet file.iso`s -
cdrecord did warn about the planned change for 2.5 years.
If you did change your scripts before, you did not notice the final change.
Note that you may either call cdrecord -tao or use tsize=
