otl converts a text file written in a user-specified syntax to a second text file with user-specified markup
otl converts a text file written in a user-specified syntax to a second text file with user-specified markup. The default conversion is from a simple, readable text file syntax designed for writing an outline to XHTML.
otl also can be used for many types of conversion since the syntax of the source file and of the output can both be customized by the user. otl is more than a search/replace front-end: it can process complex structures such as ordered and unordered lists (nested or unnested), add custom "headers" and "footers" to documents, etc. The package also includes tag-remove, a script for stripping XML tags from documents.
What's New in This Release:
When otl processes a simple text input file, it now also looks for text formatted as a table and generates the corresponding HTML markup in the output.
In addition, some minor bugs were fixed and the code was cleaned up, so Perl is happy with running under "use strict".
