Processes the Markdown language with the bundled discount library. Markdown is a lightweight markup language created by John Gruber. It is also the name of the original tool written in Perl that converts such markup into HTML. This library is a wrapper for a modified version of the discount Markdown processor, created by David Parsons. It supports several extensions of the original Markdown language, including smartypants-style substitutions, pandoc- style document headers, and parts of Markdown Extra. The modifications to discount include discarding several parts important only to stand-alone applications that accompany the library code, better consistency in library interface functions, thread-safety without eager initialization of globals, usage of the Zend memory manager and support for Microsoft Windows. Discount is available at <http://www.pell.portland.or.us/~orc/Code/discount/>. The page of the original Markdown is available at <http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/>.
