There's no package in the Ubuntu repositories that can help you with this. There is a program, though, called Convert-Lit, but you'll have to go download and build it yourself. Convert Lit will convert a LIT file into HTML as well as OEBPF format.
The best instructions for building C-Lit can be found here. I'm reproducing a simplified set of instructions based on that document.
- First, install the
build-essentialpackage, if you haven't already done so. I've already covered it in a previous entry.
- Download the Convert Lit source.
libtomcrypt.This is a library decrypting the encrypted files.
- Unpack and build the files
gzip -cd < open_clit18src.tar.gz | tar xf -
bzip2 -cd < ltm-0.30.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
- The final optional step is to install the program into your system:
sudo install clit /usr/local/bin
You can choose not to install the program, though, and just invoke it from its directory.
As I said, Convert Lit will convert a LIT file into HTML as well as OEBPF format. To do this for a file called
book.lit, you would run the command:
clit book.lit book/
The trailing / is necessary to create the directory, if it doesn't exist already. After executing, the HTML files and e-book files will be found in the
