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. <http://elinks.cz/> 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. "input_charset" 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.
