LRF formatter (convert LRFs to your favourite settings)

I wrote this program mainly to make vertical oriented (TbRl) LRF Chinese books but most functions can also be used for Western languages. Detailed tooltips are provided in the program so no more description are given here.

As usual, this program use lrf2lrs and then lrs2lrf to make the formatting. The lrs2lrf used is the very old version from Librie. It is really slow-motioned and patience is needed. If you want faster conversion, you can copy Kovid's lrs2lrf.exe (with the necessary libraries altogether) to /lrs2lrf/ but Kovid's version has some bugs treating Chinese.

Mind you this program is only amateur level.

* JRE 5.0 or above is required.
* Not all Lrf can convert to Lrs successfully.
* Not all Lrs can convert to Lrf successfully.



Rewrite the code, it works much faster now. Besides you can choose Kovid's lrf2lrs & lrs2lrf.

19/dec/08 add more line space options. Just cover the latest files to odder version.

Hi, Kovid.

TOC Column # is only valid when you select vert-oriented. I'd better explain it with a picture.



For vertical-oriented text, if the TOC items are short, there will be a lot of blank space and hence not so good-looking.

Replace text is also mainly for vertical-orientation. Vertical-orientation is achieved by rotating each characters by 270 degree. E.g. a small colon : cannot rotate while a big one :can or a small number 1 cannot while a big 1can. Some punctuation marks have 2 versions (each for one orientation) while some are dual purposed. So, it is necessary to replace those horizontal-oriented punctuation marks with vertical ones in order to make a correct display. The replacement rules are set in C(n).txt files. I think this function is not quite useful for western languages.

Hi, JSWolf

For a 300K Lrf book, it takes several minutes. For a 2M book, it might require 10-15 minutes. The old version lrs2lrf.exe works astonishingly slow and most of the time is wasted here.

Thanks, this looks like a useful tool.

A minor spelling correction: "Header Seperator" should be "Header Separator".

Great tool. Thank you.

I have found a few non-DRM LRF files that will not convert. What makes a file not convert?
