Example running from command line

On Linux and Mac OS X:

$ cli/dp2 daisy202-to-epub3
          --x-href samples/daisy202/dontworrybehappy/ncc.html
          --x-output ~/Desktop/out
          --x-mediaoverlay false
          --x-compatibility-mode false

On Windows:

$ cli\dp2.exe daisy202-to-epub3
          --x-href samples\daisy202\dontworrybehappy\ncc.html
          --x-output C:\Pipeline2-Output
          --x-mediaoverlay false
          --x-compatibility-mode false

This command will create two entries in the output directory. One is a folder called “epub”, which is a temporary directory created by the converter. The second is the resulting EPUB 3 file. The EPUB 3 file is given a name based on the dc:identifier and dc:title metadata elements from the original NCC; “dc:identifier - dc:title.epub”.


The high-level conversion workflow is as follows:
