Comments: JPEG images to PDF using Perl


Earlier this month I downloaded several episodes of the comic "Suske en Wiske" (Spike and Suzy), as cbr files. I own the original dead tree copies, but they are still in the Netherlands, and I own too many to ask my mom to take them with her when she visits us. Besides, we're running out of storage space in our little apartment.

Read the rest of JPEG images to PDF using Perl.


Thanks for that - very cool script. I have an Axim x3i and I occasionally read Tintin on it...but you're right. Pocket xpdf is pretty slow. I also miss a few handy options. For example, I think the one I have installed keeps your page position when you go to the next page, so you start the next page at the *bottom* rather than the top. Yikes!

Thanks! Did almost exactly what I wanted. Only necessary change was to use .png files. The link to the API2 Lite doc page made that obvious! I also appreciate the !#/ line at the top; saved looking it up elsewhere.
