Even more shamelessly plugging in here... ;-)

yifanlu's kindletool is (unfortunately) horribly broken in too many ways.

I know this sounds like an offence, but it's definitely not meant to be one. Yifan confirmed that this was one of his very first projects in C, and that the purpose was primarily to learn about native memory management from it. The resulting C code works well on a few configurations, but fails in various ways on others. There are a multitude of justifications or explanations for this, but the simplest one is that "C isn't really portable". Yifan's code is not "bad" or "wrong" - it just makes some assumptions that can change with the environment.

This is why I created the KindleToolTask task (for the KT localization) in the first place. It was always meant as a workaround, and it still involves the original kindletool.

The whole logic of a real "KindleTool" has beed developed and pointed out by yifanlu. The only thing that is really needed left is to actually make it work in all circumstances. I delivered a partial solution above. My (personal) recommendation is for someone with C and Java experience to look into the existing work, and to extend the Java implementation in order to reflect the original logic. Yifan Lu's original code is actually very understandable, and a good starting point.

(I don't have the time to do this by myself, but I seriously hope someone else will pick up on this)

Yup, in the same vein, I also badly suck at C, and it was an occasion to play with it and libarchive in a somewhat productive way .

FWIW, I just re-added support for your java front-end .

Okay, watch the demo and figure out how this simple little C program actually does all those things (you might learn a few C tricks): http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=176802

The word "mfgtool" is underlined (even in the quote in your reply), which indicates that it IS a link. Just click it...

@junaid: RTFM.

And I admit that I absolutely hate it when people don't even bother to end their questions with a question mark. I guess I'll simply ignore such posts in the future.

I have been sent PMs from other devs on multiple occasions suggesting that I ignore "lazy" requests too. I am most assuredly "almost" convinced (near the tipping point). Helping people is taking a lot of time away from development, so I think I will waste a lot less of my time on people too lazy to bother reading the debricking threads (the important one is now a sticky, to which I added some K3 links).

And yes, seeing requests with no capitalization or punctuation is like finding a neighbor knocking at your door asking for a cup of sugar, while they are wearing only dirty underwear.

Not so much "angry" -- just tired of answering the same old worn-out questions over and over and over and over and ...
