NAME

       dwww-convert - convert files to HTML for dwww

SYNOPSIS

       dwww-convert [--no-path-info] type location

DESCRIPTION

       dwww-convert  is  part of the dwww package, which provides access to on-line documentation
       on a Debian system via WWW.  dwww-convert converts documentation to HTML so that it can be
       viewed with a WWW browser.  dwww-convert is usually run by the WWW server, but can also be
       run by hand.

       The type argument gives the type of the file, one of:

       file   An arbitrary file; the type  is  guessed  using  simple  heuristics  based  on  the
              filename.

       dir    A  directory.  If the directory contains the file index.html or index.htm that file
              will be returned. Otherwise, A listing of the files in the directory is generated.

       html   An HTML file.  The file is returned as is.

       man    A manual page.  The location is the pathname of the nroff source file.

       runman A manual page.  The location is the name  of  the  manual  page  and  its  section,
              separated  by  a slash.  For example, the location would be intro/1 to refer to the
              intro(1) manual page.

       info   An Info file.

       text   A plain text file (using the ISO-8859-1 character set).

       An unknown file type is treated as text.

       The location argument gives the filename of the file.  The name must be complete, i.e., it
       must  start  at the root directory (/).  The name must not contain any symbolic links (cf.
       realpath(1)).  The file must be located in or below a directory that has been  allowed  by
       the system administrator; see dwww(7) for more info.

       The file may be compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1).  It is uncompressed automatically and
       invisibly.  Compression is indicated by a filename that ends in `.gz' or `.bz2'.

OPTIONS

       --no-path-info
              Internal option used by the dwww's CGI script to let dwww-convert  know,  that  the
              arguments  following  the  option do not come from the PATH_INFO variable, but from
              the QUERY_STRING.

FILES

       /etc/dwww/dwww.conf
              Configuration file for dwww.  See dwww(7) for more information.
