[Eject!] Eject allows removable media (typically a CD-ROM, floppy disk, tape, or JAZ or ZIP disk) to be ejected under software control. The command can also control some multi-disc CD-ROM changers, the auto-eject feature supported by some devices, and close the disc tray of some CD-ROM drives.

Eject should work on any Linux system, although some functions are not available when running older kernels.

Eject is free software, released under the GNU General Public License.
