Calibre Command Line Interface TOC

Is there an option to specify a TOC file from the command line interface? If so, what is the format for the input file?

If the above is not an option, what is a simple method for correctly creating a valid TOC when using 'ebook-convert' from the command line - bearing in mind that I can dynamically format the input file however I like.

Examples welcome.

to see the options for ebook-convert, from a command line type:
Code:
ebook-convert foo.mobi bar.mobi --help
Because of the '--help' at the end of the line, nothing will happen, it will just show you the available switches.
Replace foo.epub and bar.mobi with extensions more appropriate to your task, perhaps foo.html and bar.epub.

Ok, this shows the contents of the help - which I read online - from the TOC section:

"By default, if the source file has a Table of Contents, it will be used in preference to the automatically generated one."

So, at the beginning of my HTML file, I can make:

<div id="tocdiv">
<a class="toc" href="#chapter1">Chapter 1 link</a>
etc...

Then add the switch:

--level1-toc="//h:a[re:test(@class, 'toc', 'i')]"

to use the links in that div as the TOC?

I'm basing the parameter info on this post:
