WOLF format

Is there a description of this format somewhere? Is anyone using it? Where can books in this format be obtained? Are there converters available?

There needs to be a wiki entry on this format and I could use some help.

It's HanLin's pet format (you should pardon the pun). Unfortunately, that's about all I know about it.

Someone once contacted me to write a converter for it, but apparently hanlin didn't want to part with its specifications.

FWIW, the specifications _are_ around... I've asked Hanlin recently, & since they said it's okay to discuss their SDK, here goes....

From the Hanlin docs...
Code:
struct HlDocInfoS 
{ 
 int type; 
 int lang; 
 int pageNum; 
 int fileSize; 
 char *fileName; 
 char *fileDate; //Printable file date. for example 08/22/2007 
 char *bookName; 
 char *author; 
 char *series; // e.g. "Harry Potter #2" 
 char *isbn; 
 char *publisher; 
 char *publishDate; 
 char *translator; 
 char *originalName; // name of book in original language, for translation 
 char *originalAuthor; // author(s) in original language, for translation 
 char *originalSeries; // author(s) in original language, for translation 
};
From the CoolReader docs
Code:

---
I'd suggest looking in the following files...
From the Hanlin SDK docs - /sdk_root/docs/Parser-Viewer.pdf
A more descriptive file (the 2nd codeblock above) can be found in the CoolReader sources... /crengine/docs/WolfFormat.txt from the Coolreader site.

Hope that helps!

I've asked them for definition, but they refuse.
Its proprietary Jinkie format with DRM ability. They releases MS Windows software, so you can "print" to WOLF format (check WOLFPrinter software - for V8, of course it works with V3).

I'm not sure how close have you check your V3 - maybe you have noticed it.
Near battery there is a slot for SIM card - it can be used for DRM'ing books.

Any way - I've tried WOLF and I'm not impressed. For regular user there is nothing more than pdf (even filesize).

Unless the V3 supports a DRM format that you can purchase at some ebook shop to get say the latest bestseller, its going to tank. I've said this from day one when they announced this Wolf format as their DRM format. And I still think so. The average person will have no idea what to do with a V3. It'll just be a case of "Oh that looks nice" and then into some drawer to sit there unused. I know Sony has their BBeB format, but at least they have a shop and real books in that format. Wolf format has no bestsellers and Jinke wanting to keep Wolf a closed format is just shooting themselves in the foot (so to speak).

I am beginning to believe that Wolf format is nothing more than bitmapped images with one image per page. Am I close?

Possibly.

But in the case of the V6, there definitely is 2 versions of WOLF files. Let me explain...

When you use the Hanlin printer, the output appears to be graphical/bitmapped, and the resulting output cannot be zoomed in/out. The result does look good, as the fonts matches what's on your computer display.

When you use the Wolf application (chinese-only(?)) to create the WOLF file, it is rendered as text, and the text CAN be zoomed in/out, and the text does reflow, which leads me to think it's actual text. However, the output from the Wolf application is hmmm.... passable :P Nothing to write home about!

Checking the code I gave earlier, it appears that the latter format isn't documented, although I could be wrong, as I haven't got enough C coding skills to be able to implement a Wolf parser yet...

Hope that helps!

Out of curiousity, what are you planning on doing with the WOLF format...

Definitely helps. At this point I am trying to develop a WOLF format page for the wiki. You can check it to see what I have done so far. I am on a mission to try and document, to some degree, all of the eBook formats for the wiki.

In Chinese - yes. You need to use the bundled iStation application to access the bookstore, I believe.

No idea about the russian Lbook though...

If I am correct then, this Wolf format is not very useful for the United States then right?

Does anyone know how to make WOLF format ebooks, other than with Wolf Printer?

Nate the great Yes, there are several possibilities.
1) JAP - to convert PDF/DjVu files directly to WOL format (with many useful functions, such as 2,3,4 frames per PDF page, manual frame positions adjusting (separately for even and odd pages), brightness/contrast adjusting etc. - it definitely worth trying.
2) LBookPrinter and LBookMaker
3) FB2GrWol - Convertor of the FB2 format to the graphical WOLF format (nice tool if you like Table of Content and custom fonts on V8).
4) Cool Reader 3 - the same engine used in V3 for FB2 rendering.
