Markdown.pl - Convert Markdown syntax to (X)HTML


This program is distributed as part of Perl's Text::Markdown module, illustrating sample usage. Markdown can be invoked on any file containing Markdown-syntax, and will produce the corresponding (X)HTML on STDOUT: $ cat file.txt This is a *test*. Absolutely _nothing_ to see here. _Just a **test**_! * test * Yup, test. $ Markdown.pl file.txt <p>This is a <em>test</em>.</p> <p>Absolutely <em>nothing</em> to see here. <em>Just a <strong>test</strong></em>!</p> <ul> <li>test</li> <li>Yup, test.</li> </ul> If no file is specified, it will expect its input from STDIN: $ echo "A **simple** test" | markdown <p>A <strong>simple</strong> test</p>


version Shows the full information for this version shortversion Shows only the version number html4tags Produce HTML 4-style tags instead of XHTML - XHTML requires elements that do not wrap a block (i.e. the "hr" tag) to state they will not be closed, by closing with "/>". HTML 4-style will plainly output the tag as it comes: $ echo '---' | markdown <hr /> $ echo '---' | markdown --html4tags <hr> help Shows this documentation
