I've gone over this more fully. I don't like the error messages about not being able to handle UDF when given an image with a ISO-9660 filesystem. So currently get UDF handling on iso-read or iso-info one mus supply --udf or -U rather than see that spurious error. I'm not totally again autodetection, but it can't give error messages which aren't errors as this patch does.

I became aware of this in running the tests.

What still remains are tests to see that the new features in fact do. Without that it is more likely that this feature will stop working unnoticed or may currently be broken.

I recently needed to get a file from an UDF image (windows 7
installation DVD) on linux as a regular user, and I couldn't
find anything to do that. fuseiso/libarchive don't seem to have
UDF support, and while libcdio has a libudf and some sample code
to read files from an UDF image, iso-read/iso-info do not support

This patch series moves some code from the udf sample code to
iso-read/iso-info so that they can deal with UDF images as well.
They fall back to the regular ISO9660 code when the image
does not seem to be an UDF image.
