Thanks! Looks good upon a quick test.

Provided you have Perl setup exactly as described by Tommy you will only need to ensure the perl file of mobi2mobi is called mobi2mobi.pl. You just point to the directory with the file in it and tick the Use Perl tick box.

Hope this helps out some people. Let me know as usual if you have any problems.

But you cannot call it .10. It's still whatever version you used to modify it.

The Mobi2Mobi_GUI has been incremented to 0.10 as I made some internal modifications to my program to support the Perl version of Tommy's Mobi2Mobi program. As per the readme so long as you are using v0.0.37 of the Mobiperl tools or the Win32 compile the GUI should hopefully work fine. Who's version numbering do you believe I'm stepping on? =8)

He went from .009 to .010 which is perfectly legitimate way to track changes.

But does that mean that there will be a fork in the versions as some of us are not using the pearl version and are using the Windows compiled version?

Mobi2Mobi GUI v0.11 Released

Ok I've done some more tidying up and made the GUI a little smarter so that when you specify the Mobi2Mobi directory it will check for either a valid mobi2mobi.exe Win32 compile filename or a valid mobi2mobi.pl Perl filename. If you have both versions in the directory you can select to use either one.

I've also added some basic button checks on the Open & Convert buttons. You can't open a file unless a valid mobi2mobi.exe or .pl is found and you can't convert a file unless you actually open one to start with.

Hi JSWolf, the GUI supports both the Perl installed version and a Win32 compiled version and differentiating between the 2 should hopefully be a little more straight forward now within the GUI. The only caveat is that the both versions need be a minimum of v0.0.37 of the Mobiperl tools as there are features that the GUI requires that only exist from that version onwards.

Hope this makes sense to everyone. As always let me know if you have any problems or suggestions.

Cheers

Jarrod

What is pearl? Did you mean Perl? The binary is a Perl version also. It just includes the interpreter and pack all the Perl code in one file.

This one woks for me. Thanks for the good work.

The only things I'd like to see to make it perfect, in order of importance, are:

1) Set the 'language'. That one is needed because otherwise my dictionary needs that.
2) Set the 'Genre'. That makes it more easy to find a book
3) Set the 'Description' Just because I'd like it

You can set description in mobi2mobi with:
Code:
--exthtype description --exthdata "New descr"
I have also just added a flag --description which will be in the next version.

Is there a EXTH header entry for genre? I did not find it in my documentation.

I do not think you can set the language with mobi2mobi now but I will try to add it and go through my tickets and do a new release in the weekend.

Since Tommy is going to all the hard work to surface the extra flags to allow these mods I'll look at incorporating them into the GUI when they make it into the mobiperl tools.

Thanks for the feedback and improvement suggestions.

I'm not sure about the 'genre' EXTH header. But I can see it when I use Notepad++ to open a simple test book I made from a Word file.


The book is called: This is a test Book
The language is: English US
The author is: This is the Author
The genre is: Technology

The information is also in the OPF file

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package unique-identifier="uid"><metadata><dc-metadata xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/metadata/dublin_core" xmlns:oebpackage="http://openebook.org/namespaces/oeb-package/1.0/">
<dc:Title>This is a test Book</dc:Title>
<dc:Language>en-us</dc:Language>
<dc:Identifier id="uid">98B2B26D1F</dc:Identifier>
<dc:Creator>This is the Author</dc:Creator>
<dc:Publisher>This is the Publisher</dc:Publisher>
<dc:Subject BASICCode="TEC000000">Technology</dc:Subject>
<dc:Description>This is the Description</dc:Description>
</dc-metadata><x-metadata>
<output encoding="Windows-1252"></output>
</x-metadata></metadata>
<manifest>
<item id="item1" media-type="text/x-oeb1-document" href="This is a test Book.html"></item></manifest>
<spine><itemref idref="item1"/></spine>
<tours></tours>
<guide></guide>
</package>
It looks like it is called "Subject"

Then I know what it is. The thing is that a book can have more than one subject entry so I have to write code for handling this since I do not think I have done that before.
