User manual: "Klen-library" 1.0.5(01/20/2013)
Copyright © 2009 - 2013 Lab Free Technologies(IE Flegontov D.M.)
The program for creating electronic books. Designed for professional writing and reading electronic books and electronic manuals.
If there is a large market for software, which shows the office suites that contain a text editor, which has much more functionality than the Klen-library, the question arises about the need to use this program in educational institutions. The answer to that comes of itself, after reading the opportunities offered by Klen-library: using a database to store all the information, backup database libraries, access rights to edit the book, adding more information into the database, using the module tests for checking knowledge and etc. The book is in the file format xwb encrypted and in a compressed state, while economically using the free space on the hard disk.
Klen-library was created using the rules of ergonomics, and therefore learn to work in it will be quite simple. The user is given complete freedom to work with the program. This freedom is the use of any operating system installed on both the computer clients (students), and the server computer. All this became possible due to the fact that the program is cross-platform, uses a database SQLite3 and don't writes in the registry that allows it to quickly port and deploy to any number of computers. At a separate order - will be ported to your platform.Possible options:
Architectures: Intel x86, amd64(EM64T), PowerPC, PowerPC64, ARM(!)
Platforms: Windows, MacOSX, GNU / Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, MeeGo, eComStation(OS/2), NetBSD, QNX, OpenBSD, WinCE, Symbian.
Assemblies are available now for 4 architectures: Intel x86, amd64(EM64T), PowerPC, ARM(!) and 3 platforms: Windows, MacOSX, GNU / Linux.
Library can operate in two modes: "Editing" and "Reading". In Editing mode, you can create and
edit the book. In Reading mode can be, respectively do viewing and reading the book.

All of the following actions performed from the program menu, also duplicated in the dashboards. For the convenience of searching, button names correspond to the names of the menu items. It should be noted that for reading books, mostly used standard toolbar buttons, but for editing, is a separate "Edit toolbar" and "Formatting toolbar". There's also a search bar. Users, if necessary, can leave one or the other panel on the screen. Select the display panel produced by right-clicking on the main menu bar or on the free part is an open bar. By default, visible only to the standard panel. This is a quick way to change, which will not save settings panel appears when you exit the program.
When you first open the program checks to see if the options file in the system. If he is not found, it shows the welcome screen(Image 2) with short information about the program.
Location of the file by default:
Windows - %APPDATA%;
Unix - $HOME/.config;
Embedded Linux - $HOME/Settings;
Mac OS X - $HOME/.config;

Create, open, backup and restore libraries, is from the "Library". Archived library with compression. Compression can be up to 5 times.
To create a book should be: in the "Book" click on "Create..." -
opens "Creating a new book, as shown on Image 4.
Image 4. Window Creation of a new book ".
In this window there are 4 single-line field for text entry: "Book name", "Printing house", "Category", "Subcategory" and one field to enter the number "Year", padded to these values are changed accordingly: The book name, printing house, category, subcategory and year of publication of future books.
Since the "Year" is a number, an indication of the dates of literary works of antiquity can be a negative value. I mean, III-rd century BC to as -258.
Edit text, created e-book comes from the menu "Edit" and "Format". The following functions: undo, redo, the selection of the text, font, cut, copy, paste text, change alignment and register of the text.
In order to insert the image into the text to select "Insert->Image...". Supported formats: JPG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PNG, XPM, XBM, PPM.
Add / Remove page comes from the menu "Insert->Page->Insert" / "Insert->Page->Delete", respectively.
Opening the book comes from the menu "Book", selecting "Open..." - Open
dialog list of books ", which is shown on Image 5.
Image 5. Window "List of books".
When you select a row with the name of that book and subsequent clicking "OK", is opening a window "Enter password", if the book was protected by a password. After entering the password - open book. Should also be noted that the password is the book I ask only in edit mode. When viewing a book is easy to open for reading without asking for password. This was done because the "Klen-library" originally was designed for schools so that students can only read the material of electronic aids are not there making their own adjustments. Simply put - that is not spoiled. Password is given to each book creator (teacher).
"Book->Import->Folder..." making a batch import all the files in the selected folder. Import one book can be from the "Book->Import->One book...". Available import of 3 formats: XWB (your own portable format), TXT (plain text format to utf-8), and HTML. Import HTML-format, is made in such a way that is best understood as html-file exported by the program OpenOffice Writer. This will facilitate the conversion of books from the documents in *.doc (MS Word) and other formats.
Menu "Book->Export..." allows you to export the book in the following formats: XWB, PDF, PostScript, HTML, RTF, TXT. When exporting to xwb - the book is encrypted and compressed at about 5(!) times. Support for RTF-format is partial, therefore please wait the next version :)
When selecting the "Book->Export->All the books..." opens a window to export all the books. After selecting the file type - the program saves all the books from the database in the proper format. Image 6.
Image 6. Select the type of file to export the book.
Library is a database SQLite 3. Therefore, the addition or removal of books is by adding or removing
corresponding entries in the database. This suggests that the database file can be placed on a file server. With this organization, storage base, provides simultaneous operation of multiple workstations, both in view and in edit mode. It will be necessary to take into account that when you add / delete records preservation is automatically
but when you change records, padded with the names in her book, keep a record will need to manually, by pressing the button "Save." When
close window changed record (write name) automatically will not be saved.
Paging pages caused by one of the menu "View" - items "Next Page", "Previous Page". You can also enter is appropriate page number in the "Enter the required page", accessible from the menu "View->Input page number..."
Changing the language is in the window "Options".
Password books changes from the item "Service->Book password".
Will set a password the first switching in the edit mode, but changing from the item "Service->Mode password".
Saving is selecting the menu item "Book->Save".
In the "Options" there is a choice of password protection of the book (Sha1-hash), setting up the show toolbars, the ability to remember the last open database library, the choice of interface language. As there is a paths to the library, to the file of statistics, to the file options of program(Image 7).

"Book->Print" allows to print books with full text formatting.
Program has the ability to store arbitrary additional information in the form of links to individual files. This is especially useful if to any art book has a film based on it - joins as a link to a video film. To abstracts of any composer would be to add links to audio files of his musical works. Important documents associated link to the files of other documents, similar subjects, but unsupported Electronic library formats (MS Office, OpenOffice). You can create a gallery of images, attaching links to pictures, etc. There is a split into categories. All five of them: Music, Films, Photos, Documents, Programs. All added files attached so far only to the entire database, not to individual books. Therefore, the book can provide a link to the existing external file in the library. (Image 8)
Image 8. Window "List of files".
To insert a table, select the menu item "Table->Insert...", opens the parameters of the table: the number of rows and number of columns. After selecting the required number - will create a table and insert into the text books.
There is a function of working hours, held for the creation or reading a book. This is especially useful when you need to know who the students or pupils poorly refers to the process of learning and reading e-books in class, in particular. Also, the teacher can reduce the time if he has a lot of e-books created spent, for example, to find the books he edited, and those still standing to edit. Looking at the statistics of this will be found in seconds.(Image 9)

Exit out of the program from the menu "Book->Quit".
0.1.3: For those who already have a database of books and software at least version 0.1.x (up to 0.1.3), you must export all the books in the files .xwb. Then, the new version to import into a new database, because book format has changed little and the old database is not supported.
0.1.9: Due to the fact that the changed format of the book xwb, need to be in the old version (0.1.3, 0.1.4, 0.1.8) to import into a database all the books. Open the database in the new version and export all the books in the file xwb, the new format.
1.0.0: Changed the database format and the book xwb. In version 0.1.9, 0.2.5 need to import all the books into the database. Open the library in the new version. Then export into the book xwb of new format. Then create a new database of a library and import the all the books into the library. Moreover, the number and sequence of images can lose, for which I apologize. :) In the next version of support for older (0.1.9, 0.2.5) databases will be deleted, because they contained errors. It is recommended to upgrade to the current version.
1.0.5: The format database library version 1.0.0. Removed support for the old (0.1.9, 0.2.5) database library.
Available system for testing of Shelk-test, which allows not closing the book, test. "Service->Test"- opens the program "The Shelk-test". This program is an external (a separate product of laboratory). It is a third module (Creation, Testing, Journal of report). Full job description read the user manual for this program.
It is worth noting that if the options of the Klen-library path to a different testing system, it can also be started from the "Tools->Test". This universalizes program and allows you to use the system which will be able to solve the tasks in its entirety, without imposing the use of laboratory products only. Thus preserved the freedom of choice.
