Changing Title & Author in LRF?

Sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't notice it.

I've got some LRF files that I converted from LIT files. Is there any way now to alter the Title and Author properties?

Thanks!

I've tried to use this tool, but I receive errors with every book I've tried. It always outputs:

L:\Public\Books>lrf-meta Walden.lrf
Classification: 声

FreeText: This book was generated by a preliminary version of makelrf.

Your mileage may vary.

Send me the lrf file on which it fails and I will fix it. You can attach the file to a forum post.

Actually, I've only spent an hour looking into it, and I now believe that it might be how they were created. I'm going to try and continue experiementing. I've attached the file as requested.

Could you post the file in the forum? I'm in Brazil right now, and my internet just hangs on some sites for some reason.

Thanks for the info, btw.

It requires python 2.5. So you'll have to download that as well. You'll also need the installation instructions from libprs500.kovidgoyal.net
