Is someone going to start a collection? I caved, but that does not stop someone else from doing it. If it is started again, I will contribute $30.

I do want him to develop the new software, I am just not comfortable collecting the money.

I think people are just donating to him via his donate button on his webpage, that way we won't get in trouble here.

PDB and PRC are both just "wrappers" around any type of data. The contents of the file are determined by an 8-character field in the file header. In the case of a MobiPocket file this is either "TEXTREAD" or "BOOKMOBI". You'll see this if you open a Mobi file in a text viewer such as Notepad.

@tompe
The command line is web2lrf also see the link to the user profiles section under the features section of the libprs500 wiki

@everybody
Thanks for all the support. I received nearly $200 yesterday, so at this rate I can probably get a Kindle anyway :-)

And I do intend to write html2prc as time permits.
