How do i generate TOC from a plain txt file that has no markup, or HTML, but only:
blahblahblah.Or should I just figure out a sed regex to add <h1> or whatever tags before I run it thru Calibre?

Edit your .TXT file's headings using markdown like so:-
# My Book Title # My Book's Author ///Table of Contents/// ## CHAPTER 1 ... blah blah blah ... ## CHAPTER 2 ... blah blah blah ...
The ///Table of Contents/// line should be placed where you want the internal TOC to be.
When you're done editing, convert the TXT file, but make sure you check the [Convert] - [TXT Input] - "Process using markdown" box.

However, I did find out the hard way that Markdown considers indenting to mean "wrap this in <code> tags"
I had been using tabs in my text file to mark paragraphs. When I used the markdown method to create a TOC, the entire book turned into monospaced non-broken lines.
Removing the tabs and adding blank lines between the paragraphs fixed the problem.

This is not really a problem because Markdown is designed to work that way. It's described in the Markdown reference under [Code Blocks]. Starting a line with at least 4 spaces or 1 tab triggers a code block.
Incidentally, ending a line with 2 spaces triggers a hard line break, which can be useful.
Markdown is an excellent pre-processor for generating ebooks from plain text.
