Its a simple story. They made a program so that the lines of the book will become the file name. Its not a “folder with a digital book in it”. Its the “digital book itself”!

  1. We tried downloading “Rashomon” of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, which is well known by the Akira Kurosawa film, and the 6500 Japanese character piece was divided into 545 folders.
  2. “Kokoro” of Soseki Natsume, 17500 Japanese characters is now in 8812 folders.
  3. Currently, 20 novels whose copy right has expired are being publishes as demo data.

The program is published through Github, so maybe you can try it out.
If anyone tries “The Fountainhead”, be sure to let us know.
