What is wrong with this command:

java -Xms200M -Xmx300M -jar LRFTools-v0-1.9.211.jar convert -LRFTools/TenderistheNight.lrf -HTML -noo

Trying it on a Mac, but I keep getting the Actions list when I run it.

When I tried the second version of the GUI, I can see it start, but then it just closes.

P.S. Ah, well. I ran the gui in Vista, and it worked (on my Mac it doesn't.)

The conversion was decent, but the TOC didn't work (the chapters lost their tags.)

Thanks for a very useful tool, though!

LRF is a real b*tch of a format....

Hi,

this is a very nice tool, thanks for the effort.

I have converted a LRF book to EPUB and HTML, and the result is good, with the exception that there are no paragraph breaks. Is this a known problem? I attach a screenshot to show the two formats.

The screenshot of message I am quoting needs to be deleted. It's showing an illegal book. Original Star Trek novels do not have straight quotes.

As to the problem, just go into the CSS of the ePub and you can fix the problems.

I really think this falls under fair use.

Thanks for the tip. I have done something different, I have searched/replaced the beginning and end of each paragraph to add a <p> and </p>, it seemed easier that updating the CSS. The LRFTool does a good job of detecting paragraphs as each paragraph is marked with a <div> tag, so my thought was that it should be fairly simple to update it to include a <p> and </p> to have a clear division between paragraphs.

Fair use would be if it was a legal eBook. This is not a legal eBook so it cannot be fair use.

The book might not be fair use (I disagree), but the image is becuase it is only a small part, was posted for noncommercial purposes, and does not detract from the sales of the book.

Whether the book is a illicit copy is not relevant, IMO.

that's what I meant.. showing an image with part of a page of a book is fair use....

As far as the book, it is entirely possible the book was scanned and OCRed or the person lives in a country where copying the book is legal... I have no idea.

The command must be convertLRF (this was changed on recent versions). About TOC, well, I'm not sure what you mean 'lost their tags'...

then try something like:
java -Xms200M -Xmx300M -jar LRFTools/LRFTools-v0.9.211.jar convertLRF "LRFTools/Convert" -HTML -noo

1 - dont forget quotes
2 - here: LRFTools-v0.9.211.jar in folder "LRFTools" in "home"
3 - here: lrf-files in folder "LRFTools" in folder "Convert"

I'm only familiar with Java development and I can't seem to make a change to the source of the html converter. Anyone else have any experience? I'm trying to redo the output style from <div><span> to <p>. I'm not having trouble with the code, it's compiling it once I've made my changes to the emitter.java file of src/lrf/html folder.

Well, this class is only used to convert from PDF to EPUB. Actually, conversion from LRF to EPUB is handled via iText libraries. These libraries do not let me change anything. I could post-process output from them (with a flag) to change <div> to <p>... is this enough?

That would be nice. I've actually been looking at it and I think the best solution would be to remove the divs entirely and then replace the <span> tags with <p> tags. I can't wait to have line breaks again Thanks for your hard work on this project.
