The programming required to produce an ebook file is the same as the programming required to set up a book for printing (either on an offset or on a digital printing line). And this work has not to be done twice (for printing and ebook processing): for anything that is available in a standard electronic format, converting into an ebook file does not require much of a programming effort.
