NAME

maruku - converts markdown files to various output  

SYNOPSIS

maruku [options] [file1.md [file2.md ...]]

 

DESCRIPTION

NOTE

An important note for debian users: to prevent a lightweight library such as libmaruku-ruby to pull in heavy dependencies like texlive, libmaruku-ruby does not depend on texlive (but only recommends it). This means that if you do not install texlive, you will not have PDF output.
