NAME

       Text::Markdown::Discount - fast function for converting markdown to HTML (requires C
       compiler)

SYNOPSIS

         use Text::Markdown::Discount;
         my $html = markdown($text)

DESCRIPTION

       Text::Markdown::Discount is a perl interface to the "Discount" library, a C implementation
       of John Gruber's "markdown".

       It is the fastest of the Perl modules available for converting markdown: see the list in
       "SEE ALSO".  It passes Gruber's Markdown testsuite.

       Given that the performance of Discount, Text::Markdown::Discount processes markdown
       formatted text quickly and passes the Markdown test suite at

       The interface of the "markdown()" function in this module is not compatible with the
       "markdown()" function in Text::Markdown.

   EXPORT
       markdown is exported by default.

   FUNCTION
       "Text::Markdown::Discount::with_html5_tags()"
           This function enables html5 block-level elements support.
           "Text::Markdown::Discount::markdown()" will handle these html5 tags as block elements:
           aside, footer, header, hgroup, nav, section, article.

           NOTE: There is no way to disable/re-enable this feature in one process right now.

             use Text::Markdown::Discount;
             Text::Markdown::Discount::with_html5_tags();
             my $html = markdown('<article>content</article>');
             #
             # In $html, <article> tag won't be wrapped with <p> tag
