Markdown Perl5 module
Markdown is a text-to-HTML filter; it translates an easy-to-read and easy-to-write structured text format into HTML. Markdown’s text format is most similar to that of plain text email, and supports features such as headers, emphasis, code blocks, blockquotes, and links.
Markdown’s syntax is designed not as a generic markup language, but specifically to serve as a front-end to XHTML. You can use span-level HTML tags anywhere in a Markdown document, and you can use block level HTML tags like <div> and <table> as well.
