NAME

       markdown - Convert Markdown syntax to (X)HTML

DESCRIPTION

       This program is distributed as part of Perl's Text::Markdown module, illustrating sample
       usage.

       Markdown can be invoked on any file containing Markdown-syntax, and will produce the
       corresponding (X)HTML on STDOUT:

           $ cat file.txt
           This is a *test*.

           Absolutely _nothing_ to see here. _Just a **test**_!

           * test
           * Yup, test.
           $ markdown file.txt
           <p>This is a <em>test</em>.</p>

           <p>Absolutely <em>nothing</em> to see here. <em>Just a <strong>test</strong></em>!</p>

           <ul>
           <li>test</li>
           <li>Yup, test.</li>
           </ul>

       If no file is specified, it will expect its input from STDIN:

           $ echo "A **simple** test" | markdown
           <p>A <strong>simple</strong> test</p>

       version

       shortversion
           Shows only the version number

       html4tags
           Produce HTML 4-style tags instead of XHTML - XHTML requires elements that do not wrap
           a block (i.e. the "hr" tag) to state they will not be closed, by closing with "/>".
           HTML 4-style will plainly output the tag as it comes:

               $ echo '---' | markdown
               <hr />
               $ echo '---' | markdown --html4tags
               <hr>
