Convert word to ePub by command line

   In this article, I will show you how to convert word file to ePub by command line and keep hyperlinks in output ePub file. It is known to all that word document can be used as eBooks formats.  For one thing, iBook can not support word file format. You need to download third party App like Goodreader, and even if you install Goodreader,  when you add word file to your small device like iPad, it is still messy code. Then you have to open it and edit it by ANSI UTF-8 then save it. By this way, you can make it readable.
