The tarball also contains an improved wrapper script


It offers the following xorriso argument manipulation modes
   "mjg"         =  ESP in MBR+GPT+APM, with HFS+
   "mbr_only"    =  ESP in MBR, without HFS+
   "mbr_hfs"     =  ESP in MBR, HFS+ in APM
   $mode"_copy"  =  one of above modes, ESP in ISO and as appended partition
   "original"    =  pass arguments unchanged

See first 100 lines of the script for detail info.

Mode "mjg" still needs CPPFLAGS="-DLibisofs_mjg_boot_for_grub2".
It would be very interesting to know whether there are machines
which boot by "mjg" but not by "mbr_only" or "original".


I think the script contains a copy-paste bug. Both lines 202 and 222 are:

elif test x"$mode" = xmbr_only_copy

while I think that line 222 should test for mbr_hfs_copy.
