I need input on two things.

1. Are there any .txt based tutorials on any of Java/Ruby/Python/C++/C# ? I have an (extremely crappy) ebook reader which I want to use to read these when I am mobile. Please note that the reader can't operate with .pdf's. ](*,) and converting from .pdf does no good.

2. What are some printer friendly tutorials for any of Java/Ruby/Python/C++/C# ? The tutorial/book shouldn't be too long because I will obviously want to print this on paper.

Thanks for the help beforehand :)

Here's a PDF to HTML/TXT conversion tool :

Check it out. Also, if you get the Python source code, you'll find that all the official docs in plaintext format are included in the tarball.

If nothing works, you could always write a script to convert your favorite programming tutorial to plaintext. It would be an interesting programming exercise :)

I am aware of the "to-text-converters", but I didn't have much like using them.

I am also aware of the .txt Python tutorial, which I have on the reader.

What about other suggestions?
