I have developed a program which makes books from the BARD website of the National Library Service braille display 
friendly. It does the following:

Combines all volumes into one file;
Converts upper-case  to lower-case;
Eliminates extra blanks at the ends of lines;
Skips more than 1 blank line.

The conversion program is written in C, so it should work oo Windows. The command line for it uses the Linux cat 
command. I don't know of anything equivalent on Windows.

Happy and blessed Easter,
