dwww-txt2html [--man] [--utf8] [file]


dwww-txt2html is part of the dwww package, which provides access to on-line documentation on a Debian system via WWW.

dwww-txt2html is a very simple text to HTML filter, which reads text to convert from a file argument if was given or stdin otherwise. Converts `<', `>', and `&' properly. Adds <pre> and </pre> tags, but it does not add <html> or <body> tags. Handles backspace characters.

Converts local man pages and documentation files references to anchors and adds links for both http and ftp sites, mail addresses or Debian `closes: #bug_no' statements (e.g. closes: #100000).

dwww-txt2html is usually run by the dwww-convert(8) command.



Input is an uncompressed manual page.


Input is encoded in UTF-8.
