Sometimes while I'm editing, I want to convert a region to HTML. I use Perl's HTML::FromText. First I create this script and call it tohtml.
#!/usr/bin/perl use HTML::FromText; use strict; my $text = join '',<>; my $html = text2html($text, urls => 1, email => 1, bold=>1, paras => 1, allcaps => 1, tables => 1, bullets => 1, underline=>1); print $html;Then from within Emacs, I select the region and do
C-x ESC-1 ESC-| tohtml RET
