How to convert .bin to ISO in Ubuntu

.bin/.cue image files were made popular by Golden Hawk's CDRWin application.  The disc image is expressed in pairs, with the .bin file containing most of the data and the .cue file containing layout information.  I am not a big fan really hate when I get a disc image in .bin/.cue format.  ISO is the way to go and is easily readable by Ubuntu.

To convert, get a command-line program called bchunk. 

sudo apt-get install bchunk
Usage looks like: 
bchunk [options] image.bin image.cue output.iso
.  Simple and easy.
