Thanks ! I always feel the need to triple check such basic features

Thanks for helping me on this one. I've changed my script and reuploaded two new versions. Would you mind checking if the portrait one is still undreadable ?
Furthermore, the portrait one should be compatible with the reflow feature, how does it go ?
And finally (promise, that's my last one ), I've read that the prs-505 can switch to landscape mode by holding the zoom button for 5 seconds, does it render the portait file readable ?

Unfortunately, I'm on a mac, so there's no way to run PDFLRF. Furthermore, I need to upload pdf to the sony on the move by using various computers. Thus I can't assume that PDFRead dependancies hold.

That's the reason behind my small script, it doesn't use any external library (it's built with pypdf, a self contained hand made pdf parser). And it's definitely faster, since it doesn't rasterize the pdf.
