Thanks, I is!

I take it you are referring to PG Australia support?

Quick HOW-TO example:

1. on the main GUI screen click the blue text at the bottom right '^PGA List' and your browser will open with the PG Australia GUTINDEX_AUS.htm.
(when using the Perl script, refer to the GUTINDEX_AUS.htm file in the doc directory in your Install directory).
2. find the book of interest therein and then note it's EText-No. and HTML URL link,
for example, The Robe, by Lloyd C Douglas (0364A).
3. copy those two item into the GUI main screen boxes for ETEXT-No. and Input File respectively. Don't leave out the 'A' suffix on the EText-No. as that identifies the file as a PG Australia ebook for processing within GuteBook.
(when using the Perl script add: --PGnum 0364A "http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks04/0400561h.html" ).
4. fill out the GUI main and options screens as per the screenshots below
5. click convert
6. enjoy, but you may need to re-edit this file as the font size reduction had no effect since the <p>'s were fixed at 14pt.

Output results:
Code:

sample PG Australia ebooks

Using GuteBook v0.4, a sample Project Gutenberg Australia ebook (The Robe, by Lloyd C Douglas, EText-No. 0364A) was posted here.

There's almost 2000 free books available at Project Gutenberg Australia just waiting to be "taken"...

I guess in that case, paragraph indentation, would be a better "signal".
A tab character could make a good signal. It is sometimes used to indicate indentation.

See the growing library of GuteBook Ebooks containing Project Gutenberg and PG Australia ebooks created/modifiable by users. (OK, just me for now! Care to help out?)

Prester John by John Buchan in ePub format was made with Gutebook. You can find it here. I added a cover, though!

version 0.5

GuteBook now can use the new calibre v0.6 (beta) 'ebook-convert' command. Just ensure that there is no file named 'calibreold' in the GuteBook install directory (just rename 'calibreold' to '_calibreold' if you will be switching between calibre v0.5 and v0.6)

Updated GuteBook and Installer to version 0.5 in post #1 above.

REVISIONS:
v0.5 - June 22, 2009
- For GUI users: if (blank) file called 'calibreold' (no .ext) exists in install directory,
then use v0.5 (stable) calibre instead of new v0.6 (beta/release) calibre;
non-GUI users can use the new switch '--calibreold' in lieu of a file called 'calibreold'!
- better allowed installation to different location than default "C:\Program Files".
- improved direct download of PG Australia ebooks. Allowed local cached copy to
be retained using --keepzip or --keephtm; avoids subsequent PGA website downloads.
- implemented creation of eReader .pdb when using calibre v0.6 (beta)
- fixed handling of single dash ("-") options
- improved print statements feedback
- better handling of PGA metadata within .htm
- better handling of important/necessary text after "THE END" but before PGA blurb.
- allowed existing .txt CHARSET to be used for generated .htm meta content-type
- better handling of --pbnofirst when <h1> already used as a pb tag
- misc. PGA .htm fixes for color and removed fixed fontsize for <p> and <table>

Talking My most ridiculous ebook conversion...

I just discovered and wanted to convert Project Gutenberg EText-No 3651.

As a Math Major, all I can say, is that, this ebook is most definitely the most ridiculous PG ebook I've ever seen. There's even a wikipedia page for it! Hint: 4 = 2x2!

So I just had to convert it using GuteBook!


p.s. the Sony .epub version could not be created as there was no place to split the file into 300k chunks! The .lrf version compression was absolutely astonishing! The Source .epub was a bit better, but the .imp, .lit and .mobi (stnd compression) were 20-30 times bigger! What a waste...

Using calibre v0.6 beta 8, these smaller sized files (for the most part) were produced for (Source) .epub, .lit, .lrf, .mobi (stnd compression) and ereader .pdb!

Can these new formats be properly read by ebook hardware readers?

p.s. Yuck, look at that bloat with the supposed "Source" .epub by including a 119K .png logo I didn't ask for?????

Ya, I kind of get the feeling that this Professor was having drinks with colleagues and they were talking like this:
Quote:
Colleague says, "It sure was a great achievement to have been able to compute the square root of 2 to a million places"

Professor responds, "and even the square root of 3 has been done, but I did notice the square root of 4 hasn't yet been computed to one-million places"

To which another colleague interjects, "Let's just do it! Cheers!!! hick!"
...and the rest is history! ...and after a few million brain cells were, in turn, wasted...

Jon, I implemented a new feature in version 0.6 which will strip those <hr> lines, if needed to.


I'm just putting the finishing touches on it and will be posting an updated version soon.

Quote:
This is a feature request... font embedding for ePub or generating code for fonts already loaded on our reader.
I also implemented this feature for epub's and have already uploaded some sample .epubs that use the "Fontin" font. Can you check if my implementation works on your reader for the files attached before I finalize my v0.6 release? (Font file not supplied )

Thanks!
