     soldout — markdown parser library


     The soldout library only performs the parsing of markdown input, the construction of the
     output is left to a renderer, which is a set of callback functions called when markdown
     elements are encountered.  Pointers to these functions are gathered into a struct
     mkd_renderer along with some renderer-related data.

     Basic usage will be:

     1.   Create output, input buffers by bufnew() function.

     2.   Fill input buffer by bufput() function.

     3.   Create struct mkd_renderer or use provided renderer.

     4.   Call markdown() function.

     5.   Process output buffer.

     6.   Call bufrelease() function to clean up buffers.


     Simple example that uses first argument as a markdown string, converts it to an HTML and
     outputs it to stdout.

     #include <stdio.h>

     #include <buffer.h>
     #include <markdown.h>
     #include <renderers.h>

     #define INPUT_UNIT  1024
     #define OUTPUT_UNIT 64

     main(int argc, char *argv[])
       struct buf *ib, *ob;

       /* Make sure we have enough arguments. */
       if (argc != 2) {
         return 1;

       ib = bufnew(INPUT_UNIT);
       ob = bufnew(OUTPUT_UNIT);

       /* bufputs() is a wrapper over bufput() for NUL-terminated string. */
       bufputs(ib, argv[1]);

       markdown(ob, ib, &mkd_html);

       /* Note the resulted data is not NUL-terminated string;
        * to make it use bufnullterm(). */
       printf("%.*s", (int)ob->size, ob->data);

       return 0;
