Manual Reference Pages - HTML::FORMATTEXT::LINKS (3)
HTML::FormatText::Links - format HTML as plain text using links
$text = HTML::FormatText::Links->format_file ($filename);
$text = HTML::FormatText::Links->format_string ($html_string);
$formatter = HTML::FormatText::Links->new (rightmargin => 60);
$tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename);
$text = $formatter->format ($tree);
HTML::FormatText::Links turns HTML into plain text using the links
The module interface is compatible with formatters like HTML::FormatText,
but all parsing etc is done by links. See HTML::FormatExternal for the
formatting functions and options, all of which are supported by
HTML::FormatText::Links, with the following caveats.
Links can be a bit picky about its charset names. This module attempts to
ease that by for instance turning latin-1 (not accepted) into latin1
(which is accepted). A full ISO-8859-1 etc is accepted too.
In past versions of links without the -html-margin option you always get
an extra 3 spaces within the requested left and right margins.
An output charset requires Links 2.0 or higher (or some such version), and
as of 2.2 the output cannot be UTF-8 (though the input can be). Various
unicode inputs are turned into reasonable output though, for example smiley
face U+263A becomes :-).
