exactly is a trivial program that is used to exactly control the number of bytes consumers in the pipeline consume. This is especially useful when dealing with programs that use the buffered C/C++ standard I/O library or when you want an unbuffered program to be less greedy. You need to use this program with mkisofs (but not with the included flyisofs that serves the same purpose).
flyisofs creates an ISO 9660 file system on the fly from a stream of data on standard input. The data is stored sequentially in files the size of your choosing.
