Publisher's description

EText Reader Etext Reader is a simple cross-platform GUI EText reader utilizing the wxWindows GUI library. It was written to "scratch an itch" of mine, i.e. to be able read EText's using the font and color selection I like and to keep track of the current reading position within the text and allow making bookmarks to be able to reference specific portions of the text later. I was watching the Discovery Channel recently when they had a program on 'Heart of Darkness', a novel written in the late 1800's. This is the basis of the Movie 'Apocalpyse Now' and the TNT movie 'Heart of Darkness'. Assuming the copyright had lapsed, I went to the Project Gutenberg website to see if I couldn't download an EText of the book. Sure enough, it was there and hence I had to write a program to view it. Note: this is also a nice, simple example that demonstrates several features of the wxWindows library. It is incredible to note how you can go from concept to a complete working program in only a few hours using this library. Note 2: Okay, this used to be a nice, simple example for the wxWindows library but it has gotten a bit more complicated since then. Its still nice, but not so simple example using the wxWindows library. FeaturesDisplays etext's stored in text files, ZIP and GZIP archives. Allows selection of font, foreground color, background color, and line spacing. Remembers last reading position for each file viewed and moves to remembered position when file is reopened. Allows setting of multiple named bookmarks. Allows browsing and download of etext's from Project Gutenberg sites. Allows Dictionary Lookup of words (by double-clicking words or lookup from the Help menu) from online dictionaries. Supports native look-and-feel on supported platforms. Allows "cutting" text from documents. Completely free with source code!
