comment How can I determine if running tar will cause disk to fill up
Not that it really matters, but using the argument combination -f - to tar is redundant, since you can simply leave out the -f argument altogether to write the result to stdout (i.e. tar -c data_dir).

Yeah, I guess this does not work for character visual mode, it is after all a line-based operation.

comment How to create UDF images and burn them to DVD or CDROM?
@polemon: you could use du for example, to determine the size of the directories to be copied and then make the image this size, but I don't know of a single tool that does this. You are right we are not supposed to have discussions in the comments but I have edited the answer to include mention of this.

comment How to create UDF images and burn them to DVD or CDROM?
@polemon - yes, you just burn the image as normal. I haven't tried Blu-ray myself, but I imagine the process is very similar. And good find with mkudffs, I had no idea you could use it directly on the blank file and this makes the process a lot easier.
