Ruby PEG Markdown

An extension library around John MacFarlane's fast implementation of Markdown in C.


>> require 'markdown'
>> puts'Hello, world.').to_html
<p>Hello, world.</p>

>> puts'_Hello World!_', :smart, :filter_html).to_html
<p><em>Hello World!</em></p>

>> puts'_Hello World!_').to_latex
\emph{Hello World!}

>> puts'_Hello World!_').to_groff_mm
\fIHello world!\fR

>>'Hello! World!')
