I am assuming that you have mount CDROM on your GNU/Linux base
machine, now you want to create ISO image of that CD. Generally people
will do that using a dd command.

person@CREATIVEDESK:/$ dd if=/dev/cdrom of=deepOfix.iso

You can do same thing by using cat

person@CREATIVEDESK:/$ cat /dev/cdrom > deepOfix.iso

That’s all for now…
