I wanted to be able to convert the Sony/Google epub books to Plucker, so I wrote a little perl script to do that.

You'll need a copy of the standard Plucker Desktop python-based parser, and you'll need to edit the first lines of the script to adjust where your python and plucker are, unless you're on Windows and have the default settings. You'll need the XML::Simple package for perl, and maybe some other packages.

Any insights on how to go the other way i.e. plucker to .epub/.html?

EDIT: Solution to this exists now here (, thanks to pruss!

There is source code for an exploder for an older version of the Plucker format, but it doesn't support pages with more than 32k of text.
