lhsc - a prepocessor for literate haskell markdown
A Converter to convert from .lhs to .md and vice versa
lhsc is a program to convert literate haskell files in the
birdtick format to correctly rendered (git flavoured, html containing) markdown files
and vice versa.
It strips away the heading tags #, replacing them with the corresponding html tags,
'''haskell [...]''' to
> [...] as recognised by the GHC literate prepocessor.
''' [...] ''' will be converted to
< [...] and will be discarded by ghc but will still be displayed as code when rendered.
(In both cases
''' is actually the three md backticks, but its a pain to write md about md.)
lhsc (toLhs|toMd) file1 [file2] [...]
toMd commands are not case sensitive.
The program will convert each file from the other format to the specified one,
creating the files
file2.md ... or
file2.lhs ... in the same directory respectively.
To install the executeable on windows, if you can't convince cabal to use
--bindir-method=copy you can build the project locally and copy the built executeable to
C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/cabal/bin and ensure that this directory is in your path.
