I don't know that I'd use the program, but I understand the usefulness of
combining volumes and removing a lot of extra blank lines. Why does the
program convert uppercase to lowercase, though? (I'd typically want to know
what's capitalized and what's not in a book or magazine.)

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,
