general markup converter

Pandoc is a Haskell library for converting from one markup format to another, and a command-line tool that uses this library. It can read markdown and (subsets of) reStructuredText, HTML, and LaTeX; and it can write plain text, markdown, reStructuredText, HTML, LaTeX, ConTeXt, RTF, DocBook XML, OpenDocument XML, ODT, GNU Texinfo, MediaWiki markup, groff man pages, and S5 HTML slide shows.

Pandoc's enhanced version of markdown includes syntax for footnotes, tables, flexible ordered lists, definition lists, delimited code blocks, superscript, subscript, strikeout, title blocks, automatic tables of contents, embedded LaTeX math, and markdown inside HTML block elements. (These enhancements can be disabled if a drop-in replacement for `` is desired.)

In contrast to most existing tools for converting markdown to HTML, which use regex substitutions, Pandoc has a modular design: it consists of a set of readers, which parse text in a given format and produce a native representation of the document, and a set of writers, which convert this native representation into a target format. Thus, adding an input or output format requires only adding a reader or writer.

This package contains the pandoc tool itself, and the wrapper script markdown2pdf for converting markdown documents to PDFs via LaTeX (requires texlive-latex-extra) or XeLaTeX (requires texlive-xetex).

Package version:


The wrapper script markdown2pdf included with pandoc, requires the
Debian packages texlive-latex-recommended and texlive-latex-extra to
work properly.

When using the --xetex option, Debian package texlive-xetex is required
as well.

    Instead, the pandoc tool itself supports pulling web pages when
