NAME

multimarkdown - Convert MultiMarkdown syntax to (X)HTML  

DESCRIPTION

This program is distributed as part of Perl's Text::MultiMarkdown module, illustrating sample usage.

multimarkdown can be invoked on any file containing MultiMarkdown-syntax, and will produce the corresponding (X)HTML on STDOUT:

    $ cat file.txt
    [MultiMarkdown][] *extends* the very well-known [Markdown][] syntax.

    [MultiMarkdown]: http://fletcherpenney.net/What_is_MultiMarkdown
    [Markdown]: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

    $ multimarkdown file.txt
    <p><a href="http://fletcherpenney.net/What_is_MultiMarkdown">MultiMarkdown</a> <em>extends</em> the very well-known <a href="http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/">Markdown</a> syntax.</p>

If no file is specified, it will expect its input from STDIN:

    $ echo "A **simple** test" | multimarkdown
    <p>A <strong>simple</strong> test</p>

html4tags
Produce HTML 4-style tags instead of XHTML - XHTML requires elements that do not wrap a block (i.e. the "hr" tag) to state they will not be closed, by closing with "/>". HTML 4-style will plainly output the tag as it comes:

    $ echo '---' | multimarkdown
    <hr />
    $ echo '---' | multimarkdown --html4tags
    <hr>
