Text::Markup::Markdown - Markdown parser for Text::Markup


  my $html = Text::Markup->new->parse(file => '');
  my $raw  = Text::Markup->new->parse(file => '', raw => 1);


This is the Markdown parser for Text::Markup. It reads in the file (relying on a BOM), hands it off to Text::Markdown for parsing, and then returns the generated HTML as an encoded UTF-8 string with an http-equiv="Content-Type" element identifying the encoding as UTF-8.

It recognizes files with the following extensions as Markdown:


Normally this module returns the output wrapped in a minimal HTML document skeleton. If you would like the raw output without the skeleton, you can pass the raw option to parse.
