Well, here is another 'eject'.


#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/ioctl.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <linux/cdrom.h>

int main(int arg, char *argv[])
{
int fd;
if(((fd = open("/dev/cdrom", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK)) > 0) ||
(arg > 1) && ((fd = open(argv[1], O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK)) > 0))
{
if(ioctl(fd, CDROMEJECT, NULL)) /* If it failed */
{
(void)ioctl(fd, CDROMRESET, NULL); /* Reset it */
(void)ioctl(fd, CDROMEJECT, NULL);
}
(void)close(fd);
exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);
}
perror("open");
exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
}


If there is no media in the drive, it fails to eject (open the tray).

open("/dev/cdrom", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK) = 3
ioctl(3, CDROMEJECT, 0) = 671088642 -> error = 0
ioctl(3, 0x5312, 0) = 0 CDROMRESET
ioctl(3, CDROMEJECT, 0) = 671088642
close(3) = 0
_exit(0) = ?


I don't see an ioctl for CDROMOPENTRAY so I suppose CDROMEJECT
is the correct ioctl.

The last time I used CDROMEJECT, (Linux 2.2.17), it worked if there
was no media.
