The original AutoScrapbook has been developed by Kirk Bauer. I discovered this fine tool in version 3.7, and, because of one little feature (the capacity to handle Films from my Canon camera), I began rewriting from ground the script from KB. By lack of fantasy, it became AutoScrapbook-NEW (let's see if it'll stay like this, but I need to keep "ASB" as initials...).

In the mean time, KB has further developed AutoScrapbook, so you might as well have a look at it in version 4.1.


ASB is still one script, which you can easily download, rename to asb, copy e.g. to /usr/local/bin and make executable with chmod +x /usr/local/bin/asb.

You can then have your first fun with asb [some dir], answer questions (comment, rotate, edit... your pictures and MJPEG films), and have a look at the created index.html.


There are currently three ways to come to help:

  1. call asb --help on the command line,
  2. use perldoc -F /usr/local/bin/asb to get a manpage-like documentation,
  3. or follow this link, generated BTW with the command pod2html --backlink="Top" --header --infile=AutoScrapbook-NEW.txt --outfile=asb.html --title AutoScrapbook-NEW-${Version} --verbose .
    It is pretty complete, and should answer most questions, don't hesitate to contact me if you need clarifications (or find bugs).


I've started to think about the future of ASB and here is the result of my thoughts (as a MindMap visible with the Java Applet of FreeMind).
