hsmarkdown - convert markdown-formatted text to HTML


hsmarkdown [input-file]...


hsmarkdown converts markdown-formatted text to HTML. It is designed to be usable as a drop-in replacement for John Gruber's Markdown.pl.

If no input-file is specified, input is read from stdin. Otherwise, the input-files are concatenated (with a blank line between each) and used as input. Output goes to stdout by default. For output to a file, use shell redirection:

hsmarkdown input.txt output.html

hsmarkdown is implemented as a symlink to the pandoc(1) executable. When called under the name hsmarkdown, pandoc behaves as if it had been called with the options --from markdown --to html --strict and disables all other options. (Command-line options will be interpreted as filenames, as they are by Markdown.pl.)
