Description A .cbr file is a compressed file that allows a set of comic book images to be stored. These images can be ordered and the format in which they are displayed can be altered to allow two images to be viewed side by side, in the same way as a double page spread would occur. The .pdb file extension is a database format used for the Palm OS platform. The PalmDOC eBook file type is a version of the PDB format. The proliferation of eBooks has left this format behind due to the lack of support for DRM protection meaning only royalty free text is typically available.
Technical details A .cbr file is actually just a .rar file with an amended file extension. What makes a .cbr file different is that it can be opened directly by comic book viewer applications without a requirement to decompress it first. The user can also associate the file extension with a Comic Book Viewer application. Typical image formats are allowed for a .cbr file such as JPEG, GIFF, TIFF and PNG. The format supports reflowable content however the format lacks some of the features found in more modern eBook formats, for example only providing a very basic contents table. The format features RLE compression which was crucial because the format was designed for the low storage capacity Palm devices of the 1990s.
