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

    [ 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 something anyone's bothered to do yet. If you can send a PR [freebsd.org] with the command lines that can be used to do the conversion (using tools that are in the FreeBSD ports tree), or, better still, a patch to doc/share/mk/doc.docbook.mk that does this, I can integrate the additional formats in to the nightly builds for the FTP site.

    • 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.
