The tool looks great Nick!
AFAIK, the GUI, Installer and included .exe's are Windows specific (my setup), but the gutebook.pl Perl script (the work-horse routine) was written to work under Perl 5.8.8 (buiild 820).

I know that calibre and eBook Publisher work in Mac OS X, however the gutebook.pl script relies on the Windows SBPubX COM interface for .imp creation (my ebook reader's format), so it may also require the Windows eBook Publisher to be installed under wine. I've done this previously for my Mobi2IMP software for my Linux netbook using the same NSIS Installer.

I'm sorry but I don't have access to any Mac to test this stuff on and/or debug it. Perhaps, someone else can help make this work under Mac OS X. I think it's doable!

Can you at least execute the Perl script?
