text-vimcolor is a command-line program to syntax color a file in HTML, XML or PDF. SYNOPSIS $ text-vimcolor --format html --full-page FILENAME > OUTPUT.html $ text-vimcolor --format xml FILENAME > OUTPUT.xml $ text-vimcolor --format pdf FILENAME --output OUTPUT.pdf This program uses the Vim text editor to highlight text according to its syntax, and turn the highlighting into HTML, XML or PDF output. It works with any file type which Vim itself can highlight. Usually Vim will be able to autodetect the file format based on the filename (and sometimes the contents of the file). Exactly one filename should be given on the command line to name the input file. If none is given input will instead be read from stdin (the standard input). If Vim cant guess the file type automatically, it can be specified explicitly using the --filetype option. For example: $ text-vimcolor --format html --filetype prolog foo.pl > foo.html This program is a command line interface to the Perl module Text::VimColor. OPTIONS The following options are understood: --help Show a summary of the usage, including a list of options. --debug Turns on debugging in the underlying Perl module. This makes it print the command used to run Vim. --filetype file-type Set the type of the file explicitly. The file-type argument should be something which Vim will recognise when set with its filetype option. Examples are perl, cpp (for C++) and sh (for Unix shell scripts). These names are case sensitive, and should usually be all-lowercase. --format output-format The output format to generate. Must be one of the following: html Generate XHTML output, with text marked with elements with class attributes. A CSS stylesheet should be used to define the coloring, etc., for the output. See the --full-page option below. xml Output is in a simple XML vocabulary. This can then be used by other software to do further transformations (e.g., using XSLT). pdf XML output is generated and fed to the FOP XSL-FO processor, with an appropriate XSL style sheet. The stylesheet uses XSLT to transform the normal XML output into XSL-FO, which is then rendered to PDF. For this to work, the command fop must be available. An output file must be specified with --output with this format. Full details of the HTML and XML output formats can be found in the documentation for Text::VimColor. --output output-filename Specifies the name of the output file (which will end up containing either HTML, XML or PDF). If this option is omitted, the output will be sent to stdout (the standard output). This option is required when the output format is PDF (because of limitations in FOP). --full-page When the output format is HTML, this option will make the output a complete HTML page, rather than just a fragment of HTML. A CSS stylesheet will be inserted inline into the output, so the output will be useable as it is. --no-inline-stylesheet When the output format is HTML and --fullpage is given, a stylesheet is normally inserted in-line in the output file. If this option is given it will instead be referenced with a element. --let name=value When Vim is run the value of name will be set to value using Vims let command. More than one of these options can be set. The value is not quoted or escaped in any way, so it can be an expression. These settings take precedence over --unlet options. This option corresponds to the vim_let setting and method in the Perl module. --unlet name Prevent the value of name being set with Vims let command. This can be used to turn off default settings. This option corresponds to the vim_let setting and method in the Perl module, when used with a value of undef..
