FUNCTIONS

parse_markdownlike

   $st = parse_markdownlike( $str )

Attempts to parse some markdown-like formatting tags from the input $str, returning a String::Tagged::Formatting instance representing it. In particular, the following markup is recognised

   *italic*
   **bold**
   `monospace`

This parser does not attempt to be a complete, nor a fully-compatible Markdown parser, but simply tries to provide a useful function for entering formatted messages.
