NAME

HTML::FormatText::Netrik - format HTML as plain text using netrik

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



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

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



DESCRIPTION

HTML::FormatText::Netrik turns HTML into plain text using the netrik program.

<http://netrik.sourceforge.net/>

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

netrik normally emits colour escape sequences but that is disabled here (its --bw option) to get plain text.

See HTML::FormatExternal for the formatting functions and options, with the following caveats,
input_charset, output_charset These charset overrides have no effect. Input might be single-byte only, and output probably follows the input (as of netrik 1.15.7).

BUGS

netrik version 1.16.1 initializes curses even when doing just a --dump, so if you have a TERM environment variable then it must be a terminal type known to curses (terminfo(5)). If you have no TERM setting then HTML::FormatText::Netrik runs netrik with TERM=dumb so the code here works in a bare environment. (But no attempt is made here to validate or correct an existing TERM value.)
