Understanding the structure of an index inside a mobi file
While writing a mobi file parser, I tried to implement the reverse engineered specifications of the mobi format from https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/MOBI, but I struggled to understand how to correctly parse the index defined by the INDX, IDXT and TAGX sections.
In order to solve this problem, I inspected a mobi file generated by kindlegen, which (unfortunately) only increased my confusion. The order of the sections defining only a single entry was something like "INDX - TAGX - IDXT - INDX - IDXT". (followed by the RESC section; may be irrelevant)
I would appreciate any explanations which would help me to understand the structures of these indices very much!
