"What's this?"

A toolchain to build a collection of MOBIs from Caltech's new online edition of the Feynman Lectures, so you can read them offline on your Kindle. We use EPUB as an intermediate representation, so likelihood is you'll get something working on your iPocketKoboNook too.

"How do I run it?"
% make
"No, really."

Okay, you're probably missing some dependencies. We're using wget to download the pages at CalTech, two tools from TeXLive to replace equations with images, ImageMagick's convert to rasterize vector diagrams, a couple Ruby scripts (using nokogiri and mime/types) to munge the result into a self-contained EPUB, and finally one of Calibre's command-line tools to convert that to MOBI..

(Sorry.)
