CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  my $t1 = new Text::EtText::EtText2HTML;
  print $t1->text2html ($text);

  my $t2 = new Text::EtText::EtText2HTML;
  print $t2->text2html ();                      # from STDIN

  my $h1 = new Text::EtText::HTML2EtText;
  print $h1->html2text ($html);

  print $h2->html2text ();                      # from STDIN



DESCRIPTION

EtText is a simple plain-text format which allows conversion to and from HTML. Instead of editing HTML directly, it provides an easy-to-edit, easy-to-read and intuitive way to write HTML, based on the plain-text markup conventions we’ve been using for years.

Like most simple text markup formats (POD, setext, etc.), EtText markup handles the usual things: insertion of <p> tags, header recognition and markup. However it also adds a powerful link markup system, and tries to be XHTML-conformant in its generated code.

EtText markup is simple and effective; it’s very similar to setext, WikiWikiWeb TextFormattingRules or Zope’s StructuredText.

EtText is an integral part of WebMake, but unlike WebMake, which is GPL’ed, EtText is distributed under Perl’s Artistic license.

For more information on the EtText format, check the EtText documentation on the web at http://ettext.taint.org/ .
