HTML::FormatText::Netrik - format HTML as plain text using netrik
use HTML::FormatText::Netrik; $text = HTML::FormatText::Netrik->format_file ($filename); $text = HTML::FormatText::Netrik->format_string ($html_string); $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Netrik->new; $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename); $text = $formatter->format ($tree);
"HTML::FormatText::Netrik" turns HTML into plain text using the "netrik" program. <http://netrik.sourceforge.net/> The module interface is compatible with formatters like "HTML::FormatText", but all parsing etc is done by netrik. "netrik" normally emits colour escape sequences but that is disabled here (its "--bw" option) to get plain text. See "HTML::FormatExternal" for the formatting functions and options, with the following caveats, "input_charset", "output_charset" These charset overrides have no effect. Input might be single-byte only, and output probably follows the input (as of netrik 1.15.7).
"netrik" version 1.16.1 initializes curses even when doing just a "--dump", so if you have a "TERM" environment variable then it must be a terminal type known to curses (terminfo(5)). If you have no "TERM" setting then "HTML::FormatText::Netrik" runs "netrik" with "TERM=dumb" so the code here works in a bare environment. (But no attempt is made here to validate or correct an existing "TERM" value.)
