#Read only the TOC

use discid::DiscId;

fn main() {
  // Specifying the device is optional. If set to `None` a platform
  // specific default will be used.
  let device = Some("/dev/cdrom");
  let disc = DiscId::read(device).expect("Reading disc failed");
  println!("ID: {}", disc.id());

#Read the TOC and ISRCs

use discid::{DiscId, Features};

fn main() {
  let disc = DiscId::read_features(None, Features::ISRC).expect("Reading disc failed");
  println!("Disc ID: {}", disc.id());

  for track in disc.tracks() {
    println!("Track #{} ISRC: {}", track.number, track.isrc);
