FreeBSD Handbook + Plucker

[ #7737 ]

No, it's not in plucker's format. It's in another tool's format.

I'm fighting with this converter to have it to generate thumbnails of images and allow them to be clickable to be inserted at the document. I'm only getting huge or very small pictures.

BTW, this Python converter does not support PNG images (at least it's not working here), so I had to write one shell script to convert everything to JPG.

Doing this reminds me of the time I worked with docs at Conectiva. :-)

    [ I'm also nik@FreeBSD.org ]

    Yeah. See www.isilo.com [isilo.com] for readers, and www.isilox.com [isilox.com] for converters. Back when I was looking at getting the Handbook on my Palm Pilot, iSilo was (might still be) the best choice -- and they (a) shipped the manual page I sent them, and (b) produced a native FreeBSD binary of the conversion tool very quickly.

    There's no reason why we can't generate the Palm databases for other readers though, it's just not so

    • Hi, Nik. We know each other from DocBook lists and from our idea of joining some documents of TLDP and FreeBSD (remember?). I was godoy@conectiva.com, if that helps you to remember.

      I'm having some problems with the images, I'm not getting them as thumbnails and in full size when clicked. I either get them very small or very big. None of these are readable. :-)

      As soon as I get these fixed, I'll see if everything is on ports and send a patch to the Makefile.

      Thanks for your note.
