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?

Since your souce file is a text file, you could simply use Markdown to mark headings and convert the text file with Calibre to an ePub before editing it with Sigil.
(Select Convert books > TXT Input > Formatting Style: markdown before you convert the text file to an ePub file.)
