I kinda hijacked a thread explode - plucker to html
when ranting and raving about my 2006 Wikipedia.pdb (plucker) conversion. This thread was copied from there with the assistance of Nate the great.
EDIT: Some HUGE .prc (37MB), .epub (41MB) and REB1200 .imp (50MB) ebooks made from that 2006 Wikipedia CD Selection from the SOS Children website.
If I exclude images, then the resulting ebook filesizes are: 22 MB REB1200 .imp, 12 MB .epub and 9 MB .prc (high-compression) and may be much more useful. A 15 MB .prc (standard compression) is also available for those readers that cannot handle high (Huff-Dic) compression.

...Be sure to 'Switch View' or 'Show Descriptions/Tags' on the mediafire.com server to read the vital file info!
Thanks a lot! It worked like a charm using explode!
Also, I had to login (thanks to my Sony Clie TH-55 days) to get your upload at 1src.com. Most won't be so lucky.
So with the author's permission (pruss), I attach explode v0.11 to this thread for others to have access to it.
For years, everyone kept telling me that plucker to .html was not possible; and thanks to you, they are ALL wrong now!
I converted the 43MB Wikipedia 2006.pdb in plucker format
quickly as follows:
E:\ebooks> explode --directory=Wikipedia Wikipedia.pdb
I'm converting it now to .imp and from there to .mobi/.prc and .epub, so thanks again for your (much appreciated) update to explode.c.
