=================================================

1.0 CBR, CBZ and CBT

This document provides an overview of CBR (.cbr), CBZ (.cbz) and CBT (.cbt) files, what they are, how to view them, how to make them, and how to change file names if needed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.1 What are CBZ files?

CBZ files are file archives with their extension renamed from .zip to .cbz

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.2 What are CBR files?

CBR files are file archives with their extension renamed from .rar to .cbr

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.3 What are CBT files?

CBT files are file archives with their extension renamed from .tar to .cbt

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.4 What are ZIP, RAR and TAR files?

The ZIP format takes one or more files and compresses them as one file, with a .zip file extension. The RAR format does the same (and has better compression sometimes).

The TAR format is found primarily on UNIX and Linux operating systems; it can be used on Windows and Mac platforms, although the ZIP format has become the most popular. (Most users are not familiar with .tar files.) The .tar file bundles files together, although without any compression. If a user wishes to compress them, they are advised to use gzip (which turns the compressed file into *.tar.gz ) .

Software programs for making/opening/viewing the contents of these .zip, .rar and .tar files can be found on the Internet.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.5 How do I view these files?

The de-facto standards for reading digital comic books have become:

* CDisplay, the Windows Sequential Image Viewer for Windows by David Dayton.
Available here: http://www.geocities.com/davidayton/CDisplay.html

* Comical, the UNIX, Linux and MacOS X Sequential Image Viewer.
Available here: http://www.sketchyorigins.com/comics/forumdisplay.php?f=47

* FFView for MacOS X.
Available here: http://www.feedface.com/projects/ffview.html

These are free software image viewing programs designed specifically for reading digital comic book files, particularly those in .cbr and .cbz formats (and .rar and .zip formats, if they haven't had their file extensions changed to .cbr and .cbz yet).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.6 What's so good about the CDisplay/Comical/FFView programs?

They're a great way of viewing image archives, including various options which are optimised for digital comics!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.7 How do I make my own CBR, CBZ and CBT files?

Place all comic scans into a folder and rename them in page order, eg. 001 002 003 and then archive the files using WinZip, WinRAR or other compression software. Now just rename them with the different extentions. Remember .zip files are .cbz; .rar files are .cbr; and .tar files are .cbt. (Viewers, like CDisplay, can read .all of these file formats, among other extensions, but the de facto standard has become .cbz and .cbr. We recommend you use these two formats.)

You can rename a *.cbz file to a *.cbr file and CDisplay will still view it, although it isn't recommended. (This might be because WinRAR can read both .zip and .rar files.) Please stick to the original file format/extension name, especially if you're distributing files via DC++ and/or Bit Torrent.

Also, if you are using WinRAR to rar images into an archive for CDisplay to view, you can just rename the extension from *.rar to *.cbr before you actually start the archiving process.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.8 I've opened a CBR, CBZ or CBT file and the pages are out of order.

The most likely cause: The files have not been named appropriately. A prime suspect is numbering: 1, 2, 3... rather than 01, 02, 03 which means page 10 will come before page 2 and 3.

The best way to fix: Change the file name back to either .zip or .cbr. Then unzip/unrar the file and rename yourself. (It's a bit of a pain though). In some cases, there are multiple directory structures within the file. You may want to unpack the entire contents, place into one directory and rebundle (.zip, .rar or .tar) the file.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.9 I can't open the archive at all. CDisplay/Comical/FFView just hangs. Help!

This could be for a number of reasons. The file might be a corrupt archive or download. Or the file may have been incorrectly named to begin with (such as a .zip renamed as .cbr instead of .cbz). The best recommendation is to try unarchiving (opening) the file and see if you get any errors when you do that.

For example: If you downloaded a .cbr file, change the .cbr file name to .rar then try to open it. (If your system doesn't know what a .rar file is, then you may need to download/install WinRAR, the software application for .rar files.) Same with .zip files. (Try downloading/installing WinZip.) Use Google.com to find these (and other) software applications.

You may also need more RAM, whether for your video card and/or motherboard, depending on the file size.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.10 How do I change multiple file names? How do I change extensions from .rar to .cbr, or .zip to .cbz (and vice-versa)?

If you have multiple files named .zip and/or .rar -- and don't feel like taking the time to rename the extensions individually -- you can either use command line code or an application to make changes. It's important to note: You are responsible for any changes you make, using the information provided below. Make changes at your own risk!

Also: Don't change .rar file to .cbz, or .zip to .cbr. Remember: It's .rar to .cbr and .zip to .cbz

AS A GENERAL RULE: DO NOT CHANGE FILE NAMES UNLESS YOU MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR FILES FIRST!

Save the entire set of files to another directory, or offline, before you make any changes. If you screw up, you'll still have the original files.

Using the Command Line in DOS or MS-DOS prompt in Windows:

1. Start-->Run-->type in cmd
(Another option: Evoke the MS-DOS Prompt from within the Accessories menu.)

2. In the new window type cd <path to the directory where files are> eg. c:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\comics\Alpha Flight

3. Now type ren *.* *.cbr to rename all files in the folder to a cbr, or ren *.* *.cbz to rename all files in the folder to a cbz.


Using the Command Line in Linux, UNIX, and MacOS X:

# change .rar files to .cbr
Note: for file in *.rar ; do mv $file `echo $file | sed 's/\(.*\.\)rar/\1cbr/'` ; done

(Go here for more information: http://lab.artlung.com/other/unix-batch-file-rename/ )
