geteltorito is a Perl script which extracts the initial/default El Torito boot image from a CD if one exists. It will not extract any of other boot images that are allowed by the El Torito standard.

The boot image file is written to stdout and all other information (e.g., image type and size) is written to stderr. To write the image to a file instead of stdout, specify the output filename using -o filename.
