Md2man 1.5.1

md2man - markdown to manpage

md2man is a Ruby library and command-line program that converts
Markdown documents into UNIX manual pages (both roff and HTML)
using the Redcarpet library.

Version 1.5.1 (2013-03-06)


  • All this time, this project’s documentation stated that Redcarpet’s
    no_intra_emphasis option was enabled, but in reality, it was not.
    The documentation has been corrected and the option remains

  • In web pages generated by the md2man:web Rake task:

    • deactivate cross references to external manual pages

    • don’t assume that NAME section contains a tagline

    • sort man/ subdirectories in the HTML index page

    • fix link to index page from webs directly in man/

    • add generator META tag to HTML output template

    • only apply special styling to the first H1 child

    • parse title from first paragraph containing hyphen


  • rename HISTORY to VERSION so it sorts after README

  • tests should exercise engines with default options
