LRS to LRF on Mac OSX - any suggestions?

Hello everybody,

I've been playing with lrf2lrs on my mac to fix minor typos in some of my e-books, but there doesn't seem to be any way to convert the edited LRS files back into LRF without resorting to a PC. Any suggestions? I'm on a G5, so PC emulation is right out!

(If I'm just not seeing it in the tools list, smack me and point in the right direction, please!)

your much better off keeping the original files, editing them and regenerating the LRF. Since LRF isn't designed to be an archival format, there isn't much point in developing a lrf2lrs tool for anything other than reverse-engineering.

There is no OS X solution at the moment. What you'll need is Windows.

The problem is I don't _have_ the original files for the books I'm editing. (If I did, it'd be no problem to re-make them.
