HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum(3)

HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum - format HTML as plain text using vilistextum

 use HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum;
 $text = HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum->format_file ($filename);
 $text = HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum->format_string ($html_string);
 $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum->new;
 $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename);
 $text = $formatter->format ($tree);

"HTML::FormatText::Vilistextum" turns HTML into plain text using the "vilistextum" program.
The module interface is compatible with formatters like "HTML::FormatText", but all parsing etc is done by vilistextum.
See "HTML::FormatExternal" for the formatting functions and options, with the following caveats,
There's no "input_charset" option yet. ("vilistextum" has a "-y" option but it might be only a default, with the document "<meta>" taking precedence, whereas the intention of "input_charset" is to override the document.)
Charset "UTF-8" can be given for UTF-8 output. This passes "-u" to "vilistextum", which is only available if built with "--enable-multibyte" (as of its version 2.6.9).
