Is there a tool for Windows to batch-convert a folder of .lit files to a different format, preferably plain-text?

Calibre does most ebook related conversions including this one.

There is also ConvertLit which is an executable that expands one .lit file but can be wrapped in a batch script.

Both work on most OSs
