       html2wiki - convert HTML into wiki markup


       html2wiki [options] [file]

       Commonly used options:

           --dialect=dialect    Dialect name, e.g. "MediaWiki" (required unless
                                the WCDIALECT environment variable is used)
           --encoding=encoding  Source encoding (default is 'utf-8')
           --base-uri=uri       Base URI for relative links
           --wiki-uri=uri       URI fragment for wiki links
           --wrap-in-html       Wrap input in <html> and </html> (enabled by default).
                                Use --no-wrap-in-html to disable.
           --escape-entities    Escape HTML entities within text elements (enabled by
                                default). Use --no-escape-entities to disable.

           --list               List installed dialects and exit
           --options            List all recognized options (except for negations
                                such as --no-wrap-in-html)
           --help               Show this message and exit

           Additional options, including those corresponding to dialect
           attributes, are also supported. Consult the html2wiki man page for


           html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki --encoding iso-8859-1 \
               --base-uri \
               --wiki-uri \
               input.html >


       "html2wiki" is a command-line interface to HTML::WikiConverter, which it uses to convert
       HTML to wiki markup.


       If the dialect you provide in "--dialect" is not installed on your system (e.g. if you
       specify "MediaWiki" but have not installed its dialect module,
       HTML::WikiConverter::MediaWiki) a fatal error will be issued. Use "html2wiki --list" to
       list all available dialects on your system. Additional dialects may be downloaded from the


   Correspondence of options and attributes
       Each of the options accepted by "html2wiki" corresponds to an HTML::WikiConverter
       attribute. Commonly used options described in "html2wiki --help" therefore correspond to
       attributes discussed in "ATTRIBUTES" in HTML::WikiConverter. That section also contains
       other attributes that may be used as "html2wiki" command-line options.

   Mapping an attribute name to an option name
       While related, option names are not identical to their corresponding attribute names. The
       only difference is that attribute names use underscores to separate words while option
       names use hyphens. For example, the "base_uri" attribute corresponds to the "--base-uri"
       command-line option.

   Additional options defined in dialect modules
       Individual dialects may define their own attributes, and therefore make available their
       own command-line options to "html2wiki", in addition to the ones defined by
       "HTML::WikiConverter". The same rules described above apply for converting between these
       attribute names and their corresponding command-line option names. For example, Markdown
       supports an "unordered_list_style" attribute that takes a string value. To use this
       attribute on the command line, one would use the "--unordered-list-style" option. Consult
       individual dialect man pages for a list of supported attributes.

   Options that are enabled by default
       Attributes that take boolean values may be enabled by default. The "wrap_in_html"
       attribute is one such example. Because of this, "html2wiki" will effectively behave by
       default as if "--wrap-in-html" had been specified in every invocation. If this is not
       desired, the option name may be prefixed with "no-" to disable the option, as in

   Options that take multiple values
       Some attributes (eg, "wiki_uri" and "strip_tags") accept an array of values. To
       accommodate this in "html2wiki", such options can be specified more than once on the
       command line. For example, to specify that only comment and script elements should be
       stripped from HTML:

         % html2wiki --strip-tags ~comment --strip-tags script ...


       Input is taken from STDIN, so you may pipe the output from another program into
       "html2wiki". For example:

         curl | html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki

       You may also specify a file to read HTML from:

         html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html

       Output is sent to STDOUT, though you may redirect it on the command line:

          html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html >

       Or you may pipe it into another program:

          html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html | less
