Grutatxt

A plain text to HTML (and other formats) converter

Grutatxt is a plain text to HTML (and other formats) converter. It succesfully converts subtle text markup to lists, bold, italics, tables and headings to their corresponding HTML, troff, man page or LaTeX markup without having to write unreadable source text files. Grutatxt is a Perl module and a command line utility, and is the main text renderer in the Gruta CMS.

The output drivers currently supported by Grutatxt are: HTML, troff (me macros), man and LaTeX.

This software is licensed under the GPL.

I've seen that RTF output can be selected from the command line utility, but the RTF output is not correct. Why?

Yes, a partially working RTF output driver in fact exists and generates valid documents in some cases, but it's unfinished and I discourage its use. That is the reason why is not documented. Probably next version will have a fully functional one.

OK, I see. Not that I really needed RTF output, though.

Thanks for the software. It's *much* better than many, more famous alternatives as that crap named Markdown and others.

Thanks. Never used Markdown, but I've seen some comparison charts out there and it seems Grutatxt generates better code, specially regarding tables.

Markdown documentation names Grutatxt as inspiration, though, so I hope is not as bad as you say :-D
