With pleasure (I remember all too well the pain of banging my head
against a wall, trying to understand optical disk burning/verification
I've also found a much simpler method for checking that any padding is
blank which doesn't require split - just get dd to skip over the
correct amount of data):
dd if=<isoFile> bs=2048 skip=<volumeSize> 2> /dev/null | hexdump
If the padding really is blank/zeroes/null, the line above should only
produce the following output:
0000000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
(where xxxxxxx is the length of the padding, in hex)
I really should stick all this up (with a more thorough explanation)
on a webpage somewhere...
