idjvu

I'm going to take the iRex toolchain out for a spin and see how quickly I can convert ipdf into idjvu.

I expect to have something later today. Of course only those with 2.7 and not 2.7.1 will be able to use it.

Guess you are going to remove most of the code! But it is an interesting approach.

ipdf needs of the iRex toolchain more than expected; the headers of xpdf "popper" are also slighly modified respect to xpdf, as I found doing a grep for "iRex" in the includes.

Correct, ipdf is the "front end", sort of a "PDF Panel" that renders from the popper libraries.

Most of the ipdf code will be retained, I'll just slide in a djvu rendering library.

Once its working it might be interesting to make a PDF/DJVU multi-capable app.

Next would be to produce one that was tabbed so one could have several documents open at the same time. Or maybe I have the order backwards (tabs then multi-format).

@scotty1024, iRex needs to set up an affiliate program so I can credit you with my sale when I buy one.

Good idea!

The same for CommanderROR who made it possible that the first 50 or so units were handed out to MobileReaders.

Uh this may sound silly, but could one of you djvu lovers out there post a link to a djvu file?

I just looked around and I don't have any of them.

Man, there was a HUGE one in my http://dftuz.unizar.es/~rivero/lbdjvu.tgz named ebook307.djvu

Also http://dftuz.unizar.es/~rivero/galindoQM1.djvu is a bit smaller (4MB)

Problem with .djvu books is that they are mostly copyrighted books; these are the two ones where I know personally to the owners of the rights and I am asuming a "limited license for proofs in very high technology devices"

I have the backend library compiled. I've started the front end and will hopefully get it finished today during down times.

I don't think iRex supplied an answer to the autoconf issue so I'm still having to build Makefiles by hand. That will be chewing up a bit of what little time I'll have for this.

But I still think I'll have something to take out for a spin later today. Assuming you didn't upgrade to 2.7.1 that is, and based on the download numbers for ipdf that seems to be an all too small number of you out there, sigh...

Edit: I totally missed your post about the autoconf issue Scotty. I will post the details.

A quick status blip on idjvu.

All the DJVU front end code is done, has been done for hours. Back end library has been compiled for 2 days now.

I'm flailing like a Dolphin caught in a tuna net as I try to break all the dependences on poppler in iRex's ipdf threaded rendering engine.

When I get done the code base will be better for it as it will be much easier to use it to build other viewers.

By the way, what is the next file format on everyone's list?

I'd been digging in there but could never find anything I could click and download.

So far the Quantum DJVU file is tiding me over. But I must admit I feel weird building a viewer for a file format I have but a single instance of! You all really are going to owe me for this one.
