I want to turn a entire folder(R Tutorial) that is a web site(written in HTML only) that I've already downloaded all the tree to my computer, but I want to turn this into a single PDF. Someone knows how to do this?

Merry Christmas!

  1. merge the HTML files into a single file (e.g. with SoftSnow Merger)

  2. print the HTML to PDF (e.g. with CutePDF Writer)

SoftSnow Merger and Cute PDF Writer are freeware.

nollaig shona dhuit!

Edit: alternatively, try this:

download the web tutorial with Netspider.

then use Multi-HTML Converter to merge the HTML files.

i'm sorry, buti don't really have any further info on this program or where i got it from (i think i found it in an ebook forum a while back), all i have is the little note included in the download:

This program works on multi-html files that are a product of some net-spiders that will grab page by page htmls and bundle them up with the starting file that states "start_here.html", but will also work with unpacked .epub files, merging them into a single html with a stylesheet intact. One little notice here, though. To be certain that the stylesheet stays with the html file, be sure its name is stylesheet.css or edit that part accordingly in the resulting html's header.

however, it works fine for me, i use it to merge HTMLs extracted from EPUB containers.

Calibre can also be used to join HTML files.

I prefer DoPDF to CutePDF - but it is more a preference thing: dopdf.com –  Goyuix Dec 24 '09 at 3:25
    
Hummm, I got a problem, because if you see, the structure of the folder is too much complex and have many images, then the page when looks very problematic. –  Nathan Campos Dec 24 '09 at 13:34

@Goyuix: yep, there are many alternatives, Bullzip has a nice PDF printer too, i'm just so used to CutePDF (i also have PDFCreator. more features but slower) although recently CutePDF added a browser toolbar to their installer ... a nuisance! –  Molly7244 Dec 24 '09 at 15:10
