lime2k: thanks, that works fine.

Are there wiki pages for pielrf, or txt2html, that describe usage?
I'm thinking pages that show supported tags and usage tips, tricks and examples?

If there are some could ya point me the way.

If there aren't I'ld be happy to start some.
Documentation wiki (how does one pluralise wiki?) rock.

Yes, I'm having the same problem; are there any setting tricks so that all the space on the Reader's screen is used up?

So far, I've tried the following:

--topmargin=0 --sidemargin=0 --headerstyle=none

But I still get enough empty space above and below to fit in 4 more lines of text (and a small amount of space on the left and right side as well). I tried adding this as well:

--headerheight=0

While that seems to remove the extra space at the top, it makes a new gap at the bottom that's twice as large. Changing the variable to "1" and "5" produces the same effect.

Ideally, I'd like to have the entire screen used (corner to corner). I'm going to mess around with this some more, but suggestions from anyone who's been using pielrf for longer than I have would be greatly appreciated.

If you change the margins, you've got to change --screenwidth and --screenheight as well. Default width and height is 475 x 690. (Note you don't get 800 pixels of height out of the screen due to the status bar at the bottom of the screen).

Hope this helps!

Well, I finally managed to get the text to fill the top and bottom of the screen using ALL of these commands:

--headerstyle=none --headerheight=0 --topmargin=0 --sidemargin=0 --screenheight=800 --screenwidth=650

The only problem is, I still have the thin blank spaces on the left and right sides. I started with a screenwidth of 600 and worked up to 650 in increments of 10, but there were no changes visible in any of my tests. I've given up figuring this last part out, unless someone has an inspired command for me to try out (I even tried using negative values for --sidemargin, but I got an error from the program).

Version 2.1.3 - New HTML Tags, Option for No Page Break at Chapters

New version pielrf 2.1.3.

See first post to download.

NEW FEATURES
striphtml --atochapter can take HTML anchor tags and create <chapter> tags with them.
--use-html is now the default.
--baselineskip=120 is now the default
--nochapterbreaks does NOT put a pagebreak between chapters.
Added missing HTML tags.


Examples
striphtml --atochapter converts the following...
Quote:
<a NAME="SOME_TAG">This is a Chapter</a>
to
<chapter>This is a Chapter
--nochapterbreaks implements n66's request from the following post:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...4&postcount=81

New HTML tags implement those found by lime2k in the following post:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...3&postcount=85

Sorry on the time it took to update. I created some crufty code in this update, and just got frustrated. It freakin' works though, which somehow makes it even MORE frustrating! Next step is to streamline the code (purely a "programmer's thing" and won't effect functionality).

Anway, here it is... or there it is in the first post.

This a Reader issue rather than a "programmatic" problem Pielrf strips spaces so that there is only one space between each word, and the Reader itself adds additional spacing to create justified text.

Typically you get lines like that when the previous or next lines have very large words in them. The Reader justifies all text, so lines where large words didn't fit get more spacing.

I think he's referring more to the fact that some lines have both big and small spaces in them, instead of having even justification across a line.

Example:

This is a line justified how it should be.
This is a line justified how it is wrong.

Where the line ends, there's a small space, instead of a properly justified one.

Another question, can pielrf put a title page in the book before the TOC? I'd like to have the first page be the Author and the Title, then a page break via the * * * line, then the automatically generated TOC. Is this possible?

To expand on turtle's request, I have a two-part suggestion.

1: To be a little more flexible, I would like to insert the TOC at wherever I put the "TOC-goes-here" tag (which should ideally immediately precede a "chapter" tag). Why? that would permit building a book like "Title page - inside front cover blurb - publication info - TOC - chapters."

I was trying to build a book like that (but without the toc, knowing pielrf would generate it) and kept wondering why I kept getting an entry in the generated TOC called "undefined" until I realized that (doh!) there had to be something at the beginning, and if I didn't define the first bit as some kind of chapter then it was, of course, undefined.

I've also had difficulty with being unable to break pages without setting a chapter mark, but that's not really important -- I thought * * * was supposed to pagebreak, but it seems to only separate paragraphs.

2: Actually, I lied in part 1. What I really want is "(cover art) - Title page - inside front cover blurb - publication info - TOC - chapters" but I read earlier in this thread that inserting pictures isn't something you're too likely to do. Ah well, this is only a "it would be nice if" request, not a "I really need this feature" request.

I've not done any python programming, but I was looking at your code and it seems to me (and I could be all wet, not a good thing around computers or books) that it ought to be possible to emit some code before you even get around to assembling the TOC -- but I'm really not sure how to do it.

Thank you for writing pielrf - I just got my 505 for Christmas & being the type I am I immediately started loading it up with what I had available, but you have taken care of the hardest part for me with this easy little tool.

Hi there,
First thanks alot for the hard work of both EatingPie and simmepimme.
So I downloaded 2.13 of Pielrf and PielrfGUI. I downloaded Python 2.51 and installed it correctly in 10.5.1 OSX with the installer package. Then I extracted pielrf-2.1.3 into: /user/myusername/downloads/pielrf-2.1.3.
I also copied PielrfGUI into same folder.
Then I open terminal go to above folder, and type:

sudo python setup.py install

now it showed:


running install
running build
running build_py
running build_scripts
running install_lib
running install_scripts
changing mode of /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/asciicheck to 755
changing mode of /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/pielrf to 755
changing mode of /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/striphtml to 755
running install_egg_info
Removing /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pielrf-2.0-py2.5.egg-info
Writing /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pielrf-2.0-py2.5.egg-info


So this mean the pielrf is correctly installed right?

Then I launch PielrfGUI and go to menu-->install library pielrf, and there is no prompt no whatsoever.
So I opened the sample basic-test.txt in examples folder, made couple of changes in PielrfGUI and go to File-->save, and put "filename.lrf".
Now it gave me: "library failure!" have you installed pielrf library? also make sure you are using python with version >2.5. There is also a log: "env: python: Not a directory"

But I DID install pielrf library in the above step, didn't I???
Please help~~~

I must say I do love this app, it really does make it easy as pie(eating that is). Still, I too would like to request jpg support, nothing fancy, just take jpg and resize it to fit horizontally, like Web2Book, it would be so helpful in making text books, please please, I do beseech you.

I am trying to format a bible and am happy at this point to use the names of the biblical books as chapter titles.

In using pielrf, I can use the command: pielrf.py -i bible.txt -o bible.lrf
and I get a nice conversion.

However, if I use the command: pielrf.py -i bible.txt -o bible.lrf <chapter>genesis <chapter>exodus
then I keep getting the error message "The system cannot find the file specified"

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

If I'm hearing ya right... I think you've misunderstood.
You're supposed to edit the bible.txt file, search through it, and put <chapter> tags on the lines you want come out as titles. The <chapter> tags go in the text file being processed, not on the command line.

Hope that helps,
Cheers
