Converting Files?

Hello everyone, I'm currently developing a program in C# that lets a user convert files to txt, epub, pdf, and mobi format. However, the problem I'm having is there is not much information out there on converting to the mobi or epub formats. Can anyone tell me what would have to be done to convert a .txt or .pdf file to these two formats?

See the format_docs folder in the calibre source tree for specifications about a numberof formats. Search google for epub spec and you will find the official epub specification.

Oh, I forgot to mention. The majority of ebook formats (MOBI in particular but not EPUB) have no published spec. What is known is due to reverse engineering.
