Here's an example attached. It's strange, gimp opens the file w/o problems.

Edit: I had to rename the attachment from ~Cover.jpg to Cover.gif before it would attach...

I do not think the attachement worked. Which version of MobiPerl are you using. I seem to remember having problem with images looking like this but recently they seem to have worked. I assume that you do not want that image as cover anyway so it does not matter.

You have to install ActivePerl according to the the MobiPerl web page... I probably do a new Windows version in a couple of days.

I can access the attachment in the post above fine. It's just renamed Cover.gif from ~Cover.jpg. - The problem is that when Mobiperl hits one of these images it crashes and refuses to convert the book. I'm batch converting about 1000 .lit books and this problem hits just every so often. It does not occur when using convertlit to create an .oebzip file.

I think I have fixed so it does not crach and this fix is inlcuded in the latest tar version. It is not included in the latest Windows binary version.

When I clicked on the attachment nothing happened and when i looked at the icon it was a gif file so i assume that the icon is not the file. But I will try again...

Sorry, fixed now. Obviously I did some mistake when editing the Makefile to fix this. Next time I do a new version I will check that it works...

I'll test the new version (.23?), and if you right click on the attachment you should be able to save it.

Thanks for your hard work!

There is a 0.0.24 also that will give some better information about files using mobi2mobi. I will do some more enhancements and probaly do a 0.0.25 with Windows binary maybe tomorrow.

I right clicked on the attachment and did save image but that gave me a gif file.

Yes. As I said, I was forced to rename the file from ~Cover01.jpg to Cover01.gif in order to upload it. Rename the downloaded file to ~Cover01.jpg.

I meant that it is really a Gif file:
Code:
fossum:~> file Cover.jpg 
Cover.jpg: GIF image data, version 89a, 99 x 132
So I think I am saving the "icon" and not the uploaded image.

Nope! I just checked the original "jpg" file and it reports as a GIF. Could that be the problem? A routine looking for a jpg then crashing when it encouters a gif?

The filename should not matter. I just tested on a Linux machine and it did not seem to matter. The GD library should read both GIF and JPEG. Maybe the problem is that the ~ gets stripped or something. On what platform did you have the problem?

And you did not run conversions in parallell?

Version 0.0.25 with Windows Binaries

I did a version 0.0.25 with Windows binaries. I learned the zip files was easier to use than rar files so the Windows binaries are now packed in a zip file.

http://www.ida.liu.se/~tompe/mobiperl/


Changes in 0.0.25:
  • Added all language codes and added info about language in mobi2mobi
Changes in 0.0.24:
  • Added flag --boktype to mobi2mobi to change the booktype value. 2 = BOOK (default), 257 = NEWS (Wall Street Journal has this value)
  • Added flag --delexthtype that can be used to remove type mobi2mobi file.awz --outfile t.mobi --delexthtype cdetype
  • Fixed so that lit2mobi does not crach when failing to open an image file.
Changes in 0.0.23:
  • Item 401 in EXTH can be 1 or 4 butes according to examples (awz files). Removed assumption that it was 4 bytes to get mobi2mobi to work for an example file.
