Hi! I am not able to run the .exe file. I downloaded the zip file and tried to open the .exe file. Are there any required files to be installed?
Thanks!

Hi!

Any chance to get the code compiled for Mac OS X? Visual Studio seems to be heavily tied to Windows...

Cheers,

Alfy.

I do not have Mac OS X but anyone interested can compile it since the source is avaiable. Visual Studio is not required to run the program only to compile it.

What language is it written in? There is NO visual studio for Mac... as I'm sure you know.

I'm a beginner. Can someone help me on using the soPdf tool? I am using WinXP system and I put soPdf.exe and the sample pdf file "ebooktestin.pdf" under C:\. And then I opened the CMD window under the directory of C:\. I typed "soPdf.exe -i ebooktestin.pdf". I was told that "The system cannot execute the specified program".

Seems like people do not read complete instruction. You have to download the runtime libraries from Microsoft. Do a search for Visual Studio 2008 runtime libraries.

One more question:

Can someone explained a bit more about "-m" option? What does all these options mean? Is the "fit 2xWidth " option best suited for PRS-505? Thanks in advance!

linux port

First of all, I finally got a ereader (PRS-505) and I love it, except the screen is a lot smaller than I expected. I don't read novels (pft who has time for those! ) but textbooks and papers, so I really needed something to cut out the margins and basically maximize reading area. Thankfully soPdf does exactly that... but for windows

Attached is my port of soPdf for Linux.

I included a binary plus my sources for soPdf.c and processPdf.c and a brief readme.

the only dynamic dependencies are to common libs like libjpeg, zlib, freetype, etc so it should work out of the box on any modern distro (I tested on ubuntu 8.04..) I also compiled in the optional jbig2dec dependency.

it works for me, i've used it on multiple pdfs ~15-20MB each.
however, YMMV

thanks theguru
