cbrPager project is a no-nonsense, simple to use, small viewer for cbr (comic book archive) files. As it is written in C, the executable is small and fast. It views jpg (or jpeg), gif and png images, and you can zoom in and out.
Here are some key features of "cbrPager":
· Simple usage: A navigation bar stays on top of the pages.
· It works on any RAR-compressed image archive - normally the extension would be .cbr or .cbz, but other extensions work too.
· Advance/backup pages, and go to the begin and end.
· Zoom in and zoom out (10% steps) and return to 1:1.
· It should manage jpeg (jpg), png and gif images.
· A configuration window permits defining a few slightly more advanced tricks:
· When advancing go to the top of the next page (or bottom or stay where you are.)
· Same possibilities when paging backwards.
· Remember the last directory visited on startup, or always start in a defineable directory.
· Determine the initial size of the pager.
· Define where the navigation bar should be and its orientation.
· This program uses unrar to de-compress the archives
What's New in This Release:
· Avuton (avuton+at+gmail.com) send me a patch to allow reading .cb7 archives.
· Mamoru (mtasaka+at+ioa.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp) observed that the magic signature of 7p archives is actually 6 bytes long, so I combined Avuton's and this info to change the archive type checking mechanism - cleaning up the code (mine!) a little. Adding new types should be easier.

· Zurd (zurd3+at+yahoo.com) suggested using the left mouse button to advance pages. As this wasn't user-configurable, I've hardcoded it for now. Also, the middle-button goes to the previous page (On some machines, clicking left+right buttons simultaneously simulates the middle button).
· Zurd also suggested adding actual page number and number of pages to the window title.
