    FlightCrew is a C++, cross-platform, native code epub validator. It is composed of three parts:

    • FlightCrew, the validation library
    • FlightCrew-cli, the command-line front-end to the FlightCrew library
    • FlightCrew-gui, the GUI front-end to the FlightCrew library

    FlightCrew runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (and possibly other platforms). FlightCrew-gui uses the Qt Framework, but the rest does not. The validation library has no external dependencies outside of those included in the source tree and built along with FlightCrew.
    Since FlightCrew is licensed under LGPLv3, it can be directly used by closed-source projects as well as open-source ones. It was initially created for Sigil, the epub editor.
    Work on FlightCrew was inspired by the inadequacies of other epub checkers.

    QPDF is a command-line program that does structural, content-preserving transformations on PDF files. QPDF is capable of creating linearized (also known as web-optimized) files and encrypted files. It is also capable of converting PDF files with object streams (also known as compressed objects) to files with no compressed objects or to generate object streams from files that don't have them (or even those that already do). QPDF also supports a special mode designed to allow you to edit the content of PDF files in a text editor. QPDF includes support for merging and splitting PDFs through the ability to copy objects from one PDF file into another and to manipulate the list of pages in a PDF file. The QPDF library also makes it possible for you to create PDF files from scratch. In this mode, you are responsible for supplying all the contents of the file, while the QPDF library takes care off all the syntactical representation of the objects, creation of cross references tables and, if you use them, object streams, encryption, linearization and other syntactic details.
