I'm not sure which SE site this belonged on, so I figured I'd try this one.

Whenever I browser the Mac Developer Library at, on the top right of the window, there's a link for a PDF version.

Has anyone ever downloaded them all and combined them into one file? I want to download the Mac Developer Library for my Kindle, and I figure there's no .mobi versions, so I'm trying to look for a PDF version.

Thanks in advance and sorry if its not the correct site.

If you want to look at the documentation on an iPhone/iPad I recommend the docset app (on the app store or github).

For the Kindle, there's a python script to parse the documentation (downloaded by Xcode) into .mobi file. However as it isn't really updated, it may not work for docsets for Lion or iOS >=5.0

The docset from Xcode (4) are located here:
