New PDF to LRF Tool (for DJVU and CBZ files too)
There is a new gun in town for converting PDF files to LRF for reading on the Sony Reader. cacapee has recently released pdflrf – a converter for PDF, DJVU, and CBZ files. Given the recent problems surrounding RasterFarian that have caused MobileRead to withdraw that tool from distribution on this site, pdflrf fills a vital need.
pdflrf is a great tool that more than fulfills its promise – letter and A4 sized PDFs can be split and viewed on the Reader, DJVU files can be used, and CBZ files can now do more than just take up space. In a recent test a 26 MB CBZ file was converted to a 8 MB LRF file and displayed on the Reader beautifully.
In the past week pdflrf has grown from version 0.2 to 0.4 and gone from a command line interface only to a GUI. Currently for the Windows only platform, cacapee has indicated that he has written it in a way that he can migrate pdflrf to other platforms such as Linux and OSX when it becomes more mature.
