I've just tried again, using the wiki instructions as before. It seems it was a temporary glitch in the CPAN database.

All installed and working again now.

It seems that the Palm::PDB package is no longer available.

The usual reason for this is that there is some encryption in the file. I would test if Calibre or some ot the python script floating around can unpack it since I seem to remember that they handled more cases than MobiPerl.

Might want to get the previous version of the MPerl, and see if you can run that without a hitch.

I've found a problem in MobiPerl 0.43, specifically in the mobi2html section. When run on a Mobipocket version 6 file that has the extra data flags set, it doesn't decode the text properly, as it doens't know to ignore the extra data at the end of each text record.

I've raised an issue on the mobiperl tracker, and attached my attempt at a fix, which is working for me but could probably be a lot neater because I don't really know Perl.

I found out about this while trying to fix a problem in a certain Mobipocket DRM removal script.

OK, will look at it when inspired. Is this an UTF-8 think ńr is this another extra data flag?

It's mysterious trailing entries as 'documented' here:

http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/MOBI#Trailing_entries

These are in addition to the UTF-8 multibyte character overlap issue, although it works from the same 16-bit Extra Data Flags field of the mobipocket header.

ONLY for mobipocket version 6 and above - I have seen MOBI headers of 0xE8 in length even in version 5 files, and in these the trailing data entries do not occur, and trying to process them will cause problems with some files.

It looks like it is down. The Window version is in a message a couple of pages up.

It's back up. We had to relocate the server on which dev is hosted. See the announcement here.

OK, I was able to download MobiPerl but now the CPAN install of GD fails.

Are there requirements/restriction on the nature or size of the image you set the cover to? I downloaded a cover from the net and it looks about the right size. When I use mobi2mobi.exe to set the cover to the image I downloaded, it only updates the thumbnail - the actual cover image stays blank. Any ideas?

I actually do not remember. There is a flag for enabling or disabling reduction of size so you can test that. If you give me the image I can test it and see if I have the same problem.

I've done a bit of experimenting...I don't think it's actually the image. It seems to be something wrong with the book itself. I've tried several images of varying sizes, and they all have the same problem with that book.

Hi,

Would it be possible to make html2mobi to fetch the images from the internet (i.e. if the image is referenced with an url)?

(I'm doing it now)
