Fair enough! Order placed. May I recommend to try out Calibre [for conversion] which does a great job especially from HTML (or markdown) input? Or if you have a LaTeX source, there's pandoc which happily translates to several output format AFAIK.

Payment received, and my book system just sent you the book as attachment. If you don't see it in your inbox, please check your spam folder. (If still nothing, mail me!!!).

I have LaTeX source, I am gonna check out pandoc, or just prepare the document dimensions for Kindle (from their guidelines).

Some error reporting (but still, thanks for the great tutorial):

- @2.2: awk 'BEGIN { ORS="\n\n" }; 1' the ; is not necessary AFAIK.
- @3.4: same applies in awk 'NF { $0=++ a " : " $0 }; { print }'
- @3.7: ; before END
- @3.9-3.11,3.14: ; before END
- @4,17: "This is the first time we see the -F argument passed to Awk." Actually we had seen in @1.1.

Thanks for finding and reporting the errors!

There is nothing wrong with having ;, but yes, you're right, and they can be left out! One char shorter. :)

@4.17 - good catch!

It is good practise to program awk in C style. I would not want to work with anyone who believes code has to be as short as possible, sacrifying the readability.
