grapho - documentation compiler
I write documentation in markdown.
Many people don't like to read markdown.
md2html converts markdown into an HTML page which i can publish directly.

These are AWK scripts. The input markdown goes into stdin. The output document comes out of stdout.
md2html < README.md > README.html firefox README.html md2tex < README.md > README.tex pdflatex README.tex
If the awk option
stylesheet is given, the HTML document can made prettier with external CSS.
awk -v stylesheet='/style.css' -f md2html < README.md
