wepub: Fetches Wikipedia pages and turns them into an EPUB eBook
================================================================

Requirements
------------

- Bash
- Calibre
- cURL
- html-xml-utils

Usage
-----

The following shows a typical use of wepub:

  wepub britcoms.epub http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Bean ...

The first parameter to wepub is the name of the EPUB file to output
to, while the remaining parameters are the URLs of the Wikipedia pages
to include in the book. Each page is included in the order it appears
on the command line.

If the .epub suffix does not appear in the name of the output file, it
will be added. The optional -t flag is used to specify a title to
include in the EPUB's metadata. Thus, the following command line
produces a file called bc.epub whose title metadata is set to "British
Comedies":

  wepub -t "British Comedies" bc http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Bean ...
