Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your FictionBook2 e-book files and convert them to Haddock markup files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from FictionBook2 e-book
FictionBook is an open (nice!) XML-based e-book format, that’s pretty popular in Russia. The format doesn’t specify the appearance of the document, it describes it’s structure. There are special tags for epigraphs, verses, quotations and a few more. It also contains the ebook metadata (author name, title, publisher) and is great for automatic processing and indexing. And the best thing: It’s DRM-free. In contrast to ePub it’s a single XML file, even images are embedded (as Base64). That’s how e-books should work I guess. If you’re wondering how e-books should not work, read a little bit about how ePub works.
The files end with
.fb2 by default.
Converting to Haddock markup
Haddock is a nice tool to automatically generate documentation from annotated Haskell source code. I’ve never used Haskell and have no idea what it’s for, but I like automatically generated things. BTW this text is handwritten, but I probably should have set up a machine learning deep learning thing to generate those. I bet no one reads them anyway. If you do, clap your hands twice so I know you’re out there. Anyway, let’s get back to Haddock. It’s intended for documenting libraries, but it should be useful for any other kind of Haskell code. Documentations can then be generated to HTML or LaTeX. Or you use Alldocs to convert it to many other text formats for free. Cool, right?The files end with
.txtby default. More about Haddock markup files
