NAME
    Text::MultiMarkdown - Convert MultiMarkdown syntax to (X)HTML

SYNOPSIS
        use Text::MultiMarkdown 'markdown';
        my $html = markdown($text);

        use Text::MultiMarkdown 'markdown';
        my $html = markdown( $text, {
            empty_element_suffix => '>',
            tab_width => 2,
            use_wikilinks => 1,
        } );

        use Text::MultiMarkdown;
        my $m = Text::MultiMarkdown->new;
        my $html = $m->markdown($text);

        use Text::MultiMarkdown;
        my $m = Text::MultiMarkdown->new(
            empty_element_suffix => '>',
            tab_width => 2,
            use_wikilinks => 1,
        );
        my $html = $m->markdown( $text );

DESCRIPTION
    Markdown is a text-to-HTML filter; it translates an easy-to-read /
    easy-to-write structured text format into HTML. Markdown's text format
    is most similar to that of plain text email, and supports features such
    as headers, *emphasis*, code blocks, blockquotes, and links.

    Markdown's syntax is designed not as a generic markup language, but
    specifically to serve as a front-end to (X)HTML. You can use span-level
    HTML tags anywhere in a Markdown document, and you can use block level
    HTML tags (like <div> and <table> as well).

SYNTAX
    For more information about Markdown's syntax, see:

        http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/
    
    This module implements MultiMarkdown, which is an extension to
    Markdown..

    This is documented at:

    http://michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/extra/

    and

    http://fletcherpenney.net/MultiMarkdown/

    This documentation is going to be moved/copied into this module for
    clearer reading in a future release..

OPTIONS
    MultiMarkdown supports a number of options to it's processor which
    control the behavior of the output document.

    These options can be supplied to the constructor, on in a hash with the
    individual calls to the markdown method. See the synopsis for examples
    of both of the above styles.

    The options for the processor are:

    use_metadata
        Controls the metadata options below.

    strip_metadata
        Not implemented yet.

    empty element suffix
        This option can be used to generate normal HTML output. By default,
        it is ' />', which is xHTML, change to '>' for normal HTML.

    img_ids
        Controls if <img> tags generated have an id attribute. Defaults to
        true. Turn off for compatibility with the original markdown.

    heading_ids
        Controls if <hX> tags generated have an id attribute. Defaults to
        true. Turn off for compatibility with the original markdown.

    bibliography_title
        The title of the generated bibliography, defaults to 'Bibliography'.

    tab_width
        Controls indent width in the generated markup, defaults to 4

    A number of possible items of metadata can also be supplied as options.
    Note that if the use_metadata is true then the metadata in the document
    will overwrite the settings on command line.

    Metadata options supported are:

    document_format
    use_wikilinks
    base_url

METADATA
    MultiMarkdown supports the concept of 'metadata', which allows you to
    specify a number of formatting options within the document itself.
    Metadata should be placed in the top few lines of a file, on value per
    line as colon separated key/value pairs. The metadata should be
    separated from the document with a blank line.

    Most metadata keys are also supported as options to the constructor, or
    options to the markdown method itself. (Note, as metadata, keys contain
    space, whereas options the keys are underscore separated.)

    You can attach arbitrary metadata to a document, which is output in HTML
    <META> tags if unknown, see t/11document_format.t for more info.

    A list of 'known' metadata keys, and their effects are listed below:

    document format
        If set to 'complete', MultiMarkdown will render an entire xHTML
        page, otherwise it will render a document fragment

        css Sets a CSS file for the file, if in 'complete' document format.

        title
            Sets the page title, if in 'complete' document format.

    use wikilinks
        If set to '1' or 'on', causes links that are WikiWords to
        automatically be processed into links.

    base url
        This is the base URL for referencing wiki pages. In this is not
        supplied, all wiki links are relative.

METHODS
    new A very simple constructor.

    markdown
        The main function as far as the outside world is concerned. See the
        SYNOPSIS for details on use.

    _Markdown
        The main function (internal use only).

    Header2Label
        Internal use only.

    xhtmlMetaData
        Internal use only.

    textMetaData
        Internal use only.

NOTICE
    Warning: this code is messy and does not adhere to any consistent set of
    code guidelines; this is not because of the original quality of the
    code, which is far above what I can pretend to be capable of creating,
    but because of the various patching and diffing steps in between and the
    incomplete translation of the original code into a module.

BUGS

    Caveats section above) please send email to:
