Burn ISO to CD in OS X

From time to time you run into an ISO-file you might need to burn to a CD. How simple it may be with DiskUtility or Finder, I find it easier to do it in Terminal.

Terminal

There’s just one single command:

hdiutil burn <iso file>

Example:

hdiutil burn /path/to/iso/example.iso

In Terminal the output looks like this:
