You have a lot of files in your folder and you want to send them for many people and they want to burn a CD/DVD to save those files.
However, to make life easier for all, you might create a ISO for that.
In this post we will use the program mkisofs. It can generate an ISO9660/JOLIET/HFS hybrid filesystem.
The sintax of this program is:
mkisofs -o [filename.iso] [path]
Now, let’s make a example of that. Open a terminal and type:
mkisofs -o download.iso Downloads/
The command above will get all the files inside the directory Download and will use them to create a file called download.iso.
