    Linux::CDROM and Device::USB perhaps?


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      Unfortunately, Device::USB is probably not what you want if you are thinking of USB drives. It's focus is lower level.

    You can use the cdrecord and growisofs linux command line tools, for writing into cd or dvd.
