The ebook is Modern Perl
, which is provided by the author in epub format as well as PDF. Notice how Stanza cuts off the long lines, which is a known issue with Stanza
. However iBooks is painfully slow on my iPod Touch and is generally considered inferior for good reason. Yet it wraps the whole line and displays it.
I am also giving Calibre
, an ebook manager, another shot lately. When I attempted to use it before, getting ebooks from my computer to Stanza was painfully unreliable*; now there are two new options for iOS sync including sending ebooks them via iTunes
and that is actually 100 times less painful and actually works. If you do it that way, however, iBooks sees the epubs and Stanza doesn't (on iOS, the app kind of owns the documents it opens, kind of like Palm OS 5 which I thought we were evolving away from.) iBooks is painfully slow, but at least it is not cutting off lines like the ones shown above.
* With the caveat that I was a little slow to figure out I needed to reserve an IP address for the iPod Touch and so I may have contributed to the unreliability of the initial method.
