NAME

HTML::FormatText - Format HTML as plaintext

VERSION

version 2.11

SYNOPSIS

    use HTML::TreeBuilder;
    $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new->parse_file("test.html");

    use HTML::FormatText;
    $formatter = HTML::FormatText->new(leftmargin => 0, rightmargin => 50);
    print $formatter->format($tree);

or, more simply:

    use HTML::FormatText;
    my $string = HTML::FormatText->format_file(
        'test.html',
        leftmargin => 0, rightmargin => 50
        );

DESCRIPTION

HTML::FormatText is a formatter that outputs plain latin1 text. All character attributes (bold/italic/underline) are ignored. Formatting of HTML tables and forms is not implemented.

HTML::FormatText is built on HTML::Formatter and documentation for that module applies to this - especially "new" in HTML::Formatter, "format_file" in HTML::Formatter and "format_string" in HTML::Formatter.

You might specify the following parameters when constructing the formatter:

leftmargin (alias lm)

The column of the left margin. The default is 3.

rightmargin (alias rm)

The column of the right margin. The default is 72.
