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


To install Grutatxt, do it just like you would do to any Perl module, so

perl Makefile.PL
su -c "make install"

This will install the perl module ( as well as the command
line utility (grutatxt).

Grutatxt includes several command-line arguments; see them using

grutatxt --help

This README file contains all the marks that Grutatxt is able to
understand so that it serves also as a demo. So, to see how this file will
look after being converted by Grutatxt, you can just do

grutatxt < README > README.html


grutatxt --mode=troff < README | groff -t -me -Tps >

and see its effects.

What's New in This Release:
URL detection improvements.
A new man page.
