How to automatically create chapter titles and breaks in an epub file?
I have a big file that is separated into categories with an underscore beneath each category name. The file is constantly changing and there are 80 categories. It is a plain text file. I would like to make it so that each category name is a separate chapter in an epub file. I would also like to make sure each chapter name is the title of the chapter. Is there a way to do this automatically with Calibre? Maybe some regex magic? For example, I would like the chapter titles for the categories below to be: Fruit, Vegetables, Herbs. And I would like it to be parsed automatically (one way to do this would probably involve recognizing the underscores in a regex expression). How can I do this?

The Keyword you are looking for is 'markup'
IMHO, if you are going to do that much work... Do it the Sigil (and REGEX) way: (?sm)<p (.+?)</p>\s+<hr

You could add some simple 'Markdown' to your txt file like this (note the #'s):
##Fruit ________ Apples Bananas ##Vegetables ____________ Cucumbers Zucchini ##Herbs _____ thyme cayenne
