Text::Markup::None - Turn a file with no known markup into HTML


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


This is the default parser used by Text::Markdown in the event that it cannot determine the format of a text file. All it does is read the file in (relying on a BOM, encodes all entities, and then returns an HTML string with the file in a <pre> element. This will be handy for files that really are nothing but plain text, like README files.

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.
