hsmarkdown - convert markdown-formatted text to HTML
hsmarkdown converts markdown-formatted text to HTML. It is designed to
be usable as a drop-in replacement for John Gruber's Markdown.pl.
If no input-file is specified, input is read from stdin. Otherwise,
the input-files are concatenated (with a blank line between each) and
used as input. Output goes to stdout by default. For output to a
file, use shell redirection:
hsmarkdown input.txt > output.html
hsmarkdown is implemented as a symlink to the pandoc(1) executable.
When called under the name hsmarkdown, pandoc behaves as if it had been
called with the options --from markdown --to html --strict and disables
all other options. (Command-line options will be interpreted as
filenames, as they are by Markdown.pl.)
