Command line order

I don't know what ArchLinux is about, but this page was a very nice reference for growisofs. However, according to the man page for growisofs, all options for growisofs should come before the -[Z|M] /dev/dvd-device. The synopsis is:

growisofs [-dry-run] [-dvd-compat] [-overburn] [-speed=1] -[Z|M] /dev/dvd <mkisofs-options>

so this line:

growisofs -Z /dev/cdrw -v -l -dry-run -iso-level 3 -R -J -speed=2 -joliet-long -graft-points /Magazines/=/home/citral/books/mags/

should rather be:

growisofs -dry-run -speed=2 -Z /dev/cdrw -v -l -iso-level 3 -R -J -joliet-long -graft-points /Magazines/=/home/citral/books/mags/

since -dry-run and -speed=N are options for growisofs and not mkisofs. I'm guessing growisofs figures that out for itself though, but for the sake of consistency, I feel the order should be changed... - (Reep 15:24, 4 April 2006 (EDT))

Sounds very logical to me. Since it is your discovery, would you mind updating the page yourself? --citral 14:24, 16 July 2006 (PDT)
