|-n||--include||id||A comma separated list with ID values is expected.
|-N||--include-path||file_or_dir||Scan the ID of the source and add it to the include list. If the source is a directory then scan all images of the directory.

|--include-first||The options --include, --include-path, --exclude and --exclude-path decide which discs are included into the operation. If neither include nor exclude options are used, than all disc are included into the operation. If only include options are used, than only the specified discs are operated. If only exclude options are used, than all all discs but not the excluded are operated.
If include and exclude options are used together and

|-d||--dest||path||Define a destination path (directory or file). The destination path is scanned for escape sequences (see option --esc) to allow generic paths.|
|-D||--DEST||path||Like --dest, but create the directory path automatically.|
|-E||--esc||char||Define an alternative escape character for destination files. The default is '%'. For Windows (CYGWIN) it is a good choice to set
|-z||--split||Enable output file splitting. The default split size is 4 GB.|
|-Z||--split-size||sz||Enable output file splitting and define a split size. The parameter 'sz' is a floating point number followed by an optional unit factor (one of 'cb' [=1] or 'kmgtpe' [base=1000] or 'KMGTPE' [base=1024]). The default unit is 'G' (GiB).|
|--disc-size||size||Define a minimal (virtual) ISO disc size.|
|--prealloc||[=mode]||This option enables or disables the disc space preallocation. If enabled the tools try to allocate disc space for the new files before writing the data. This reduces the fragmentation but also disables the sparse effect for preallocated areas.
The optional parameter decides the preallocation mode:
|--trunc||Truncate a PLAIN ISO images to the needed size while creating.|
|--chunk-mode||mode||Defines an operation mode for --chunk-size and --max-chunks. Allowed keywords are
|--chunk-size||sz||Define the minimal chunk size if creating a CISO or WIA file (for WIA details see option --compression}). The default is to calculate the chunk size from the input file size and find a good value by using a minimal value of 1 MiB for »--chunk-mode ISO« and
The parameter 'sz' is a floating point number followed by an optional unit factor (one of 'cb' [=1] or 'kmgtpe' [base=1000] or 'KMGTPE' [base=1024]). The default unit is 'M' (MiB). If the number is prefixed with a
If the input file size is not known (e.g. reading from pipe), its size is assumed as
|--max-chunks||n||Define the maximal number of chunks if creating a CISO file. The default value is 8192 for »--chunk-mode ISO« and 32760 (maximal value) for all other modes. If this value is set than the automatic calculation of --chunk-size will be modified too.
|--enc||encoding||Define the encoding mode. The mode is one of NONE, HASHONLY, DECRYPT, ENCRYPT, SIGN or AUTO. The case of the keywords is ignored. The default mode is 'AUTO'.|
|--modify||list|| This patching defines the impact of the options --name and --id. It expects a comma separated list of the following keywords (case ignored) as parameter:
All keywords can be prefixed by
|--name||name||This patching option changes the name (disc title) of the disc to the given parameter. Up to 63 characters are expected. The disc header and boot.bin are objects to modify. The option --modify selects the objects.|
|--id||id||This patching option changes the ID of the disc to the given parameter. 1 to 6 characters are expected. Only defined characters not equal '.' are modified. The plus sign '+' is a wildcard for multiple '.' to fill the complete entered ID to 6 characters. The disc header, boot.bin, ticket.bin and tmd.bin are objects to modify. The option --modify selects the objects.|
|--region||region||This patching option defines the region of the disc. The region is one of
|--common-key||index||This patching option defines the common key index as part of the TICKET. Keywords
|--ios||ios||This patching option defines the system version (IOS to load) within TMD. The format is
|--rm-files||ruleset||This patching option defines filter rules to remove real files and directories from the FST of the DATA partition. Fake signing of the TMD is necessary. The processing order of file options is: »--rm-files --zero-files --ignore-files«.|
|--zero-files||ruleset||This patching option defines filter rules to zero (set size to zero) real files of the FST of the DATA partition. Fake signing of the TMD is necessary. The processing order of file options is: »--rm-files --zero-files --ignore-files«.|
|--psel||list||This option set the scrubbing mode and defines, which disc partitions are handled. It expects a comma separated list of keywords, numbers and names; all together called parameter. All parameters are case insensitive and non ambiguous abbreviations of keywords are allowed.
Each parameter becomes a rule and each rule is appended to a rule list. Rules prefixed by a minus sign are DENY rules. Rules prefixed by a plus sign or without a prefix are ALLOW rules. Each partition is compared with each rule until a rule matches the partition. If a match it found, the partition is enabled for a ALLOW rule or disabled for a DENY rule.
The allowed keywords are:
|--raw||Abbreviation of »--psel RAW«.|
|-W||--wdf||Set ISO output file type to WDF (Wii Disc Format, default)|
|-I||--iso||Set ISO output file type to PLAIN ISO.|
|-C||--ciso||Set ISO output file type to CISO (Compact ISO, same as WBI).|
|-B||--wbfs||Set ISO output file type to WBFS (Wii Backup File System) container.|

|--flat||While extracting a disc image strip all path names of the source file and store all files in the same directory. This option sets the default for --pmode to
|--files||ruleset||Append file select rules. This option can be used multiple times to extend the rule list. Rules beginning with a '+' or a '-' are allow or deny rules rules. Rules beginning with a ':' are macros for predefined rule sets.|
|--copy-gc||If extracting a GameCube disc image, don't extract the real files to
|--no-link||Don't try to create a hard link if copying the image forced by the option --copy-gc.|
|--neek||Abbreviation of »--psel data --pmode none --files :neek --copy-gc«. The old name --sneek is accepted too.|
|--links||Detect soft and hard linked source files while composing or extracting discs and try to create hard links instead of independent copies on the destination file system.|
|-U||--unique||Eliminate multiple ID6 from the source list.|
|-i||--ignore||Ignore non existing discs without any warning.|
|-R||--remove||Remove source files/discs if operation is successful. If the source is an extracted file systems (FST) it isn't removed.|
|-u||--update||Copy only non existing discs.|
|-o||--overwrite||Overwrite already existing files without warning.|
Each parameter is scanned for an ID6, see »Disc IDs« for detals.
Each ID can be followed by
For each found disc a Wii ISO image is created in the current working
directory as base. The option --dest can be used to define an other
base destination directory. Option --DEST is like --dest,
but the directory path is created automaticaly.
New images are created in the base directory.
If the ID contains a path extension (
If a disc is found on 2 or more WBFS partitions the disc image will only extracted from the first source. To overwrite an existing file the option --overwrite must be set. The option --ignore suppresses error messages about non found disc images. If the option --remove is set then the discs which are extracted without errors are removed from all WBFS partitions.
The output is scrubbed. The scrubbing can be controlled or disabled with the options --psel and --raw. The options --split and --split-size control the splitting. If option --remove is set then the souce file is removed after successfull operation. The output file format can be selected by option or filename. The destination filename can be filled with esacpe sequences to generate content dependent filenames. See »Writing an image« for details.
If the --quiet option is set only error messages will be printed. If the --verbose option is set run time calculations will be made too. If the --verbose option is at least twice a progress status will be shown. The progress output is also enabled by setting --progress.
If the --test option is set the programm does nothing, neither copying nor removing. Instead it will print some 'WOULD ...' messages. If the --testoption is set at least twice then only a normalized ID6 list is printed, each ID in one line. If a destination filename is known 'ID=name' is printed.
