True (EReader comes to mind), but those would have a .PDB extension, as Palm datafiles should have. .PRC on Palm was supposed to be a program. AFAIK, there is no .PRC ebook that isn't a Mobi.

Still, we'll get there in the end, seeing Kiwidude's reaction

I'ts a bit roundabout way. but seemed to work:

Changed .prc extension to .mobi
Imported to Calibre (next to prc)
Got count
Deleted mobi

To be safer, in future I'd import to second (test) library and copy/paste the count. Just in case.

Two questions

Is there any way the plugin could have an option to allow the confirmation of import dialog to be skipped - i.e. just go ahead and update the page/word count field without additional input?

Any chance of adding pdf support?

Thanks!

I agree on the skipping confirm. I can see maybe leaving it there for people who start the process by accident, but... isn't a new count always going to be the same (or more accurate) than an old count? And we aren't offered a side-by-side comparison, so can't imagine catching problems at this stage in the process. At minimum, it should auto-apply if the field is empty.
