create a cd9660 or ffs file system image from a directory tree

NetBSDĀ® makefs(8) creates a file system image from a directory tree without the need for superuser privileges. The MirBSD version fixes ECMA 119, SUSP and RRIP (Rock Ridge) compliance and adds features.

Supported target filesystem types are:

   cd9660   ISO 9660 (ECMA 119) compatible filesystem images, with
            Rock Ridge, El Torito, and other features
   ffs      4.2FFS, the BSD Fast Filesystem, also known as UFS1;
            UFS2 (with "-o version=2")

The images created can be of a fixed (predefined) size, given on the command line, or sized automatically. Permission bits are taken from the source directory tree but may be overridden using an mtree file.

This utility does not currently support Large Files (2 GiB or more).
