Kovid rocks!

Sweet. Most excellent! Also looking forward to the next release.

Now I no longer have to feel bad about using propriety lrf. Or feel like I can get locked in. A big deal for me ... it's a particular pain since I've decided that lrf looks a little better on my 505 (I like the headers), and it's a little faster.

Kovid - much obliged. Enough to put my money where my mouth is, something I'll have to continue since Calibre is excellent software.

Thanks Kovid, I've been dreaming of this.


Is the e-pub size actually a quarter of the lrf? That would make a huge difference in the amount of books that can be stored on the reader.

the size difference is because the epub doesn't include the embedded fonts

Fantastic addition. A lot of the lrf formatted books on this website are a bit frustrating for me as i find the font size too big. Now i can fix that. Thanks.

Thanks, Kovid!

When I converted books for my mother's Sony, I didn't think to keep the original files--which means all of her books are in lrf. I worried about what might happen if someday Sony decided to stop producing ebook readers (or ditched lrf for them). Now I don't have to worry, because I can convert those lrf files to ePub!

I should note that the LRF conversion code is very new and probably has lots of bugs (I did write most of it at it at an airport after all)

I've begun converting most of my LRFs over and it seems to be working so far! The files I've checked over have, anyway; a few seem to get stuck and when I check 8 minutes later they're still going...

They'll stay in LRF, I think!

I can't thank you enough for this! If I decide to upgrade away from Sony, at least I can convert my lrf collection to take with me.

I've had them get stuck before, sometimes when I'm converting individually or sometimes while batch. I'm not sure why they get stuck, but if I try to convert them again, they tend to convert in the normal amount of time. Just saying you might want to give those books a second go.
