Convert TEXT2HTML

Ever felt the need to convert a text file to html?

Create a file named txt2html with the following contents

# Always start the output with
#an html header

BEGIN {print ""
print ""

# use the name of the inputfile
# as title

print "" FILENAME ""
print ""

# The text is formatted
# already, so use


print "
"}


# lines consisting of a number
# of dashes (more than 1) are
# replaced by a


/^---*$/ {print "
"; next}

# lines consisting of a number of equalsigns are replaced
# by a thick


/^===*$/ {print "
"; next}

# less than and greater than
# sign must me replaced by tags.

{gsub("<","\<")
gsub(">","\>")

# Replace form feeds by a
# couple of empty lines

gsub("^L","



")
print}

# At the end of the output,
# we must add some closing tags.

END {print "
"}

Make this executable
(chmod a+x txt2html) and you're
ready to start converting your test files.

txt2html something.txt > something.html
