    Is there a homebrew program that lets you view pdf files?

    I like to read my magazines; and converting them to images just dosn't do it for me.

    I doubt it since PDFs eat up a lot of memory. And, the format is both complex and proprietary. I know of an opensource program that can decode and render PDFs (xpdf), but there's no way in hell it will compile for an NDS no matter how you mod it. That's what happens when unscrupulous companies push their bloated proprietary standards upon users.

    Either convert the PDF to a text file, or if it has pictures in it convert them to pictures and use this.

    PDF is not a proprietary format (though I think it was in the past).
