Script for Listing Etexts from Project Gutenberg


I’m a big fan of Project Gutenberg and have downloaded many of their etexts over the years. However, their etexts have numeric file names, which aren’t very human friendly. In order to keep track of the etexts that I have saved on my computer, I’ve written a little perl script to extract the author and title from the etexts and generate an HTML file to list them.

The code’s release under the GPL, so feel free to tinker with the code and share alike.
