NAME

HTML::FormatText::Lynx - format HTML as plain text using lynx

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use HTML::FormatText::Lynx;
 $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_file ($filename);
 $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_string ($html_string);

 $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->new (rightmargin => 60);
 $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename);
 $text = $formatter->format ($tree);



DESCRIPTION

HTML::FormatText::Lynx turns HTML into plain text using the lynx program.

<http://lynx.isc.org/>

The module interface is compatible with formatters like HTML::FormatText, but all parsing etc is done by lynx.

See HTML::FormatExternal for the formatting functions and options, all of which are supported by HTML::FormatText::Lynx, with the following caveats
leftmargin, rightmargin Prior to the -nomargins option of Lynx 2.8.6dev.12 (June 2005) an additional 3 space margin is always applied within the requested left and right positions.
input_charset, output_charset Note that latin-1 etc is not accepted, it must be iso-8859-1 etc.

output_charset becomes the -display_charset option and can’t be used on very old lynx which doesn’t have that option (eg. lynx circa 2.8.1). Perhaps in the future output_charset could be dropped if it’s already what will be output, or throw a Perl error when unsupported.

    Extra Options

justify (boolean) If true then -justify is passed to lynx to have all lines in the paragraph padded out with extra spaces to the given rightmargin (or default right margin).
unique_links (boolean) If true then -unique_urls is passed to have lynx give its link footnotes just once for each distinct URL, re-used when the same URL occurs more than once in the document. This module option is per HTML::FormatText::WithLinks.
