Post eReader.com conversion

I was a big book buyer from peanutpress, now ereader. Just got a PRS 505 and would like my purchased books to go to my new device.

I have found pdbshred able to extract images and *.pml source from my *.pdb book files. I need a proggy to convert *.pml to *.lrf (or any easily convertable format).

I would prefer a command line tool as I have a batch file I wrote to pipe books to pdbshred, and would like to just add another line to it...

Does this tool exist?

This thread talks about such a tool, although I understand it may be difficult to find.

Took some googling but I found the script. Calibre stopped working after I installed Python 2.5, but the command line tools still work.

Here's the batch file I wrote to convert my books:

Code:
@echo off
ereader2html.py %1 "c:\books" "Name" [CC Number]
"c:\program files\calibre\html2lrf" -t %1 book.html
Where name is your name and [CC Number] is you credit card number (to unlock ereader drm).

I renamed the *.pdb files to the name of the book with no extention. This is why I set the metadata title with %1.

Example:

Code:
C:\books>ereader2lrf "Get Shorty"
eReader2Html v0.03. Copyright (c) 2008 The Dark Reverser
Processing... done
Processing book.html
        Parsing HTML...
        Converting to BBeB...
        Rationalizing font sizes...
Output written to C:\books\book.lrf

yes, ereader2html is the way to go. that's what i did when i bought a book from the site (not knowing they only dealt with pdb books. from there you can convert to mobi or whatever you want rather easily.
