chaining web2disk to html2lrf
I'm working on rewriting the Bookit backend and am stuck on how to chain html2lrf (or html2epub) to web2disk.
web2disk takes and output directory as a parameter, but html2lrf requires a specific file to convert. The main output file from web2disk is derived from the url, so it's difficult for me to predict what it will be.
I can submit a patch to web2disk to specify a file name for the primary downloaded file unless you have a better suggestion.
The result would be something like:
web2disk -d c:\temp\ -o index.html http://www.example.com html2lrf c:\temp\index.html
e.g. c:\temp vs c:\temp\index.html

An alternative would be to simply use the file in the directory that has the oldest (or newest, you'll have to check) creation time (assuming the directory was empty to start with).
In fact, IIRC web2disk creates only a single file in the top level directory.
