HTML::FormatText::Lynx - format HTML as plain text using lynx


use HTML::FormatText::Lynx; $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_file ($filename); $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_string ($html_string); $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->new (rightmargin => 60); $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename); $text = $formatter->format ($tree);


"HTML::FormatText::Lynx" turns HTML into plain text using the "lynx" program. <> The module interface is compatible with formatters like "HTML::FormatText", but all parsing etc is done by lynx. See "HTML::FormatExternal" for the formatting functions and options, all of which are supported by "HTML::FormatText::Lynx", with the following caveats "leftmargin", "rightmargin" Prior to the "-nomargins" option of Lynx 2.8.6dev.12 (June 2005) an additional 3 space margin is always applied within the requested left and right positions. "input_charset", "output_charset" Note that "latin-1" etc is not accepted, it must be "iso-8859-1" etc. "output_charset" becomes the "-display_charset" option and can't be used on very old "lynx" which doesn't have that option (eg. lynx circa 2.8.1). Perhaps in the future "output_charset" could be dropped if it's already what will be output, or throw a Perl error when unsupported. Extra Options "justify" (boolean) If true then "-justify" is passed to lynx to have all lines in the paragraph padded out with extra spaces to the given "rightmargin" (or default right margin). "unique_links" (boolean) If true then "-unique_urls" is passed to have lynx give its link footnotes just once for each distinct URL, re-used when the same URL occurs more than once in the document. This module option is per HTML::FormatText::WithLinks.
