NAME

       rst2pdf - Convert reStructuredText documents to PDF

SYNOPSIS

       rst2pdf [options] [input] [-o output]

DESCRIPTION

       The usual way of creating PDF from reStructuredText (ReST) is by going through LaTeX.  The
       rst2pdf utility provides an alternative by producing  PDF  directly  using  the  ReportLab
       library.

       3.  Same as --smart-quotes=2, but inverts the shorthand for dashes: "--" (dash  dash)  for
