# escape.sh - Escapes angle brackets in text files
# Written by Samuel Bierwagen
#
# Turns angle brackets into < and > HTML entities.
# With --irc, replaces the first 8 columns (the timestamp) with an
# opening angle bracket, using an ugly hack.
#
# This is free and unencumbered software released into the public domain.
