These tools (Mobi2mobi-GUI and MobiPerl in general) are becoming quite dated. There's been no active development on them in quite some time. If anyone is hoping for updates or bugfixes at this time, you might be disappointed. Links to the code (for both the gui-frontend and the underlying perl scripts) are posted in the various threads for anyone who feels energetic enough to try.

They were invaluable learning/modification tools for their time, but I'm afraid their heydays may have come and gone.

Mean? Nah ... more like mercy.
I cut my teeth on Mobiperl. Taught me most of what (little) I know about the guts of the mobi format.

I would just like to confirm for anyone still using the GUI that I have officially stopped any further development of the application. The source code is available so feel free to pull it apart and tweak to your hearts content. Have fun.

I finally make it work.

1. Make Mobi2mobi GUI create its batch file in default system encoding, instead of UTF8.
In this way, the batch file can correct process local filenames, e.g. Chinese filename.

< Dim swBat As New StreamWriter(path, False, System.Text.Encoding.[Default])
---
> Dim swBat As StreamWriter = File.CreateText(path)

2. Adjust its GUI form to show the controls in my computer display better.

3. Now the hard part. Make mobiperl translate its command line parameters into UTF8 before update mobi file. You can not exec mobi2mobi.exe in command line or perl system() call to pass the UTF8 arguments. Program exec will go via local encoding.

I have changed the orginal mobiperl.pl into a Perl Module m2mrun.pm. The module has one interface m2mrun::m2mrun(...) which take the same arguments as the old command line. Of course, it has no issue with the UTF8 encoding now.

The only thing left is, write a new mobi2mobi.pl which translate its command line parameters from system encoding (GBK in my case) into UTF8 and call m2mrun(...).

Now all works fine. In order to work better, you can also change the Mobiperl::EXTH.pm, update all known EXTH names and binary EXTH tags.

Thanks for Jad, DiapDealer. Really appreciated it.

Does this offer any help? I'm not really much of a Perl guy.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...-utf-8-in-perl

Uses the I18N::Langinfo module to detect the original encoding of the arguments, which you can then convert to Perl strings. Output can then be changed to whatever encoding is desired/required.

EDIT: Oops. It appears (from the comments) that I18N::Langinfo may not be available on win32.

Actually I have completed the work.

Mobi2mobiGUI created .bat in system encoding. mobi2mobi.pl convert the parameters to UTF8 and call m2mrun.pm module (no exec call) using Perl's subroutine call. The output is in UTF8 encoding and mobi2mobi.pl convert it to system encoding.
The GUI will read the system encoding file and works correctly.

I don't know how to upload files so I hope the above details are enough for anyone to make it work.

Mobi2mobi with mobiperl for GBK system encoding

The attached is the Mobi2mobiGUI with mobiperl for GBK system encoding.

You can change the mobi2mibi.pl to make it work with other system encoding. Just change the line my $system_encoding = "gbk";

You have to install Perl for Windows and needed modules.
Encode; # also install Encode submodule for your system
Palm::PDB;
Palm:: Doc;
Date::Format; # for ctime call
Getopt::Mixed;
Image::Size; # Used to recognize the first record that is an image

Good luck.

Hi everybody,
I've just downloaded mobi2mobi and really can't figure out why it doesn't load my ebooks' metadata.
I've downloaded both mobiperl 0.0.36 and 0.0.43 and loaded them on the GUI; I already had MS .NET Framework 4.5.2 installed so I didn't remove it to install the 3.5 version.
Anyway when I try to load a file (I tried azw, mobi, prc and lit but nothing worked) this message appears (look image) and if I click continue no metadata is loaded anyway.
ps if I try to remove the m2mcmds.bat file it says access denied, even if I try to change permissions and ownerships.

this is the detailed error message:
Code:
See the end of this message for details on invoking 
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

I can't help you with your specific problem, but if you only want to change the metadata of a Kindle book, check out Java Mobi Metadata Editor.
