KindleGen is a command line tool used to build eBooks that can be sold through Amazon’s Kindle platform. Amazon intends this tool as the main way to submit files to be published on their web site. However, since AZW is almost identical in format to MOBI files, tools used to create MOBI files can also be used to generate AZW files by simply renaming the extension. There are some subtle differences however.
