Fetching Gutenberg docs

The Project Gutenberg provides free books. You may fetch your favored books online via the provided searchform, or offline by preparing the downloads.

Preparing downloads is cumbersome because booktitle and URL dont match. I wrote two PERL-scripts:

The scripts were developed under LINUX. Example:

./gutenbergrdf2openoffice catalog.rdf

OOo catalog.rdf.sxc

... manual "x" insertion ...

./gutenbergopenofficefetch catalog.rdf.sxc

./gutenbergopenofficefetch may get a second argument if you wish to change the download server, eg.: ./gutenbergopenofficefetch catalog.rdf.sxc ""
