       maruku - converts markdown files to various output


       maruku [options] [ [ ...]]


       maruku  is  a  markdown  interpreter:  it  accepts files written in the
       markdown language and transforms them into  HTML,  TeX  of  PDF  (using
       pdflatex).  If  no  file is given on the command-line, maruku acts as a
       filter and converts standard input to standard output.

       An important note for debian users: to prevent  a  lightweight  library
       such  as  libmaruku-ruby  to  pull  in heavy dependencies like texlive,
       libmaruku-ruby does not depend on texlive  (but  only  recommends  it).
       This  means  that  if you do not install texlive, you will not have PDF
