The INF format is being used more and more in the open source world with the preferred viewer being DocView,  part of free pascal. http://sourceforge.net/projects/fpgui/files/fpGUI/1.2/

Ohh, I didn't know of that projects. It is very interesting.

I want to recover all the OS/2 Toolkit documents for EDM/2, since the links to "http://cyberkinetica.homeunix.net" are now dead.

So, I want to ask permission to IBM to republish, but first I need to convert INF files to PDF format, because nobody can read INF file (with the exception of us). Plus I think that PDF will be a better format to put on the web since it can be indexed by search engines, etc.

What do you recommend me to convert the INF OS/2 Toolkit documents to PDF? or does someone has already converted (maybe I missed that)?

I tried INF2HTML which is good, but I need to go to the next step and convert it to PDF.

Does http://www.warpspeed.com.au/book/books.htm offer the same information that was at http://cyberkinetica.homeunix.net ?



Hi All.

Just saw your note. Whenever possible I used to download all of the old Voice Magazines in *.INF format. I have a version of PMPDF that works for me, so I simply grabbed a magazine and printed it to a file which I have attached. It seems you can read it, but some of the links don't work. Hopefully this will be fit for your purpose. Regards. NICK

There seems to be all dead links to the book.


Alex Taylor:
Simplest way is to use NewView to print the file to a Postscript printer on FILE: and then convert the output PS file to PDF (which is quite easy with Ghostscript).

Or even just print straight to an ePDF or PMPDF printer object.

If it makes use of split windows then obviously you'll lose that aspect of the layout, but it will still come out pretty readable in my experience (I just tested here with my VROBJEX documentation).
