Converting .prc files to .pdf

Is there any way to do this? I realize from looking around that it's not a popular choice, but I like my current way of doing things (Skim for notes, devonthink for organizing--on a mac).

If not, can I convert to .pdf from any of the formats Calibre will convert .prc files to?

Cheers,
Patrick

p.s. the .prc/mobipocket file does not have DRM and is read by Calibre without any problems.

Mobipocket, MS Reader BBeB (LRF) cannot be printed using the default programs for displaying them. Maybe give FBReader or uBook a try and see if they can handle any of these formats and print them.

I have never tried this, but I guess I would use Calibre to convert to LRF and then LRFTools (LRFTools. Convert LRF to EPUB, HTML, PDF and RTF).

In principle, MOBI is a single-file HTML that should be easy to convert to PDF with any number of tools. It has a few MOBI-specific tags though. If you want to try the direct approach, use the Calibre's command line command mobi2oeb to explode the MOBI to HTML+Images and then convert the HTML to PDF (I would use OpenWindows to allow customization).
