NAME

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

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

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>



OPTIONS

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>
