I have now "Gnuplot in Action - 2nd edition" in epub on my e-book reader, and I would like to load the official gnuplot documentation (which it is often referred to) on the same device.

I could find the pdf file, but I would prefer an epub format, and the conversion from pdf to epub gives an unsatisfactory result.

Usually conversion from html to epub works better, but I could find no html documentation for gnuplot 5. Any suggestion?

That's an issue for the gnuplot dev team.

Hi, I was the Development Editor on this book. What tool are you using to convert PDFs to EPUB? If you aren't already using it, perhaps you could try Calibre (, which is free. It can do a decent job of converting PDFs.
