I will reiterate, great tool - many many thanks.
Could you post me the example please (lrf file)? Thanks

trying to get just an rtf output for a single lrf (Trumpet-Major.lrf) in the directory results in:

java.lang.NullPointerException

at lrf.parse.ResurseDirs.(init)(RecurseDirs.java:108)
at lrf.parse.ResurseDirs.main(RecurseDirs.java:33)

Since I'm not a java-phile, I have no idea where to go from here. Any help out there?

Thanks,
Gene
Try with quotes on dir:

java -Xms100M -Xmx100M -jar LRFTools.jar convert "h:\ebook Conversion\lrftools" -RTF

You can grab both the lrf and the raw HTML here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28515

I've reviewed the same section in the HTML file and see nothing special, but perhaps I am overlooking it. It was converted with Calibre's html2lrf, the command used is in the same post as the files.

On that note, what I would really love is well-formatted HTML from LRF, any chance of that?

Thanks, Elinares:
Enclosing the directory in quotes got me part-way there. Got a conversion without error messages, but the file contains only the images--no text. If there are no images in the file, I get a single blank rtf page. Any ideas?
Thanks,
GeneS

It works well with the file I linked before.
It does not with other files, which I got by conversion from other formats.
Calibre read them well, and the LRF2LRS converter works well.

I cannot post them here, though, because in the US they're still under copyright.

In any case, Thank you!

I changed font size with =X='s LRF2LRF and it worked, but I got a RTF with a bold "Error! Hyperlink reference not valid." at each page break.

Things are getting better...

Yes, I've notice it if you use Microsoft Word, StarOffice does not prompt you. Anyway links in RTF have problems actually; I'm working on...

Not working here. Does this require Windows? I ask because of the java.io.FileNotFoundException.

I've made a mistake. No, windows is not required, but *nix does not like '\' as path separator ...

URL?

I've read this thread twice and I can't find a URL to download LRFTools from. Am I just missing it or is the link missing?

Try with version 0.1.36. If you convert to it to XML, check that <Text> tags have really text (are not empty)...
