    Create an ebook from texi files


    Hello I've downloaded

    https://shop.fsf.org/books-docs/free...an-3rd-edition

    press "Read More" and you can find the source texi files. The PDF doesn't fit well my ebook reader screen so I want to create a .mobi or .epub.

    The source is splitted in lot of "texi" files. I should put them in a single epub/mobi file. There is a "Makefile" to create the PDF but I can't understand how to modify it to create a mobi/epub and execute it.

    Can you help me?

    Thank you!

    P.S. I tried to convert the PDF with calibre, but the result is not good at all.

    pandoc seems to convert a texi files to another, but the problem is that I must merge a lot of texi files. I didn't understand how and the documentation didn't help me... I really can't understand how to do that.

    ... but I'm lucky and someone on GitHub wrote a conversion script of the book I'm interested in and uploaded the book in .mobi and .epub

    The book is Free Software Free Society: Selected Essays of Richard M. Stallman, 3rd Edition
