Searchable copy of Vogel


Does anybody have a searchable copy of Vogel? Does such a document exist?

All PDFs that I have seen are image copies where you cannot search for a particular word or phrase. I might consider scanning a copy through an OCR application, but tidying up the output would be a huge job and I would likely lose interest.

The copy in the library is searchable, though not perfectly, since the search is based on uncorrected OCR text:

http://library.sciencemadness.org/library/books/vogel_practi...

Open it and try searching for e.g. 'reflux'.

All the scanned books in the SM library have OCR text for searching embedded beneath the page images.

Ctrl+F then type whatever you want to find on SM's Library copy.

There was a fifth edition floating around on the net. Availability of such books waxes and wanes. I've downloaded several such books to my computer, only to discover that they are perishable. After a few days or weeks, they seem to delete themselves.
If you can't spring for the original book, a ream or two of cheap paper, and a laser jet printer, and a large binder.... can solve your problems. Used laser jet printers are super cheap where I live, as are cartridges and/or toner.

V5 has come up here before IIRC.

When 4shared deleted me, the reups were the .pdf versions if they were made, since .djvu is almost dead and buried now. The original (well the 9.76 MB non-ocr .djvu was the original by a few hours, dating nearly to the hour the-hive's demise) .djvu OCR version that was now rides again FWIW, in the mediafire preparative folder. No "official" ocr of the original 14.3 MB .pdf was made.
