       HTML::FormatText::Elinks - format HTML as plain text using elinks


        use HTML::FormatText::Elinks;
        $text = HTML::FormatText::Elinks->format_file ($filename);
        $text = HTML::FormatText::Elinks->format_string ($html_string);

        $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Elinks->new (rightmargin => 60);
        $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename);
        $text = $formatter->format ($tree);


       "HTML::FormatText::Elinks" turns HTML into plain text using the "elinks" program.


       The module interface is compatible with formatters like "HTML::FormatText", but all
       parsing etc is done by elinks.

       See "HTML::FormatExternal" for the formatting functions and options, all of which are
       supported by "HTML::FormatText::Elinks" with the following caveats.

           As of Elinks 0.12pre2 (Oct 2008) has various unibyte input charsets but the only
           multibyte input charset accepted is utf-8.  You could recode others to utf-8 if
           necessary (but this module doesn't attempt to do that automatically).

       Elinks can be a little picky about its charset names.  This module attempts to ease that
       by for instance turning "latin-1" (not accepted) into "latin1" (which is accepted).  A
       full name "ISO-8859-1" etc is accepted too.
