NAME
       Markdown.pl - 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.pl 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>

       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>
