NAME


htmldoc - convert html source files into html, postscript, or pdf.

SYNOPSIS


htmldoc [options] filename1.html [ ... filenameN.html ]

htmldoc [options] -

htmldoc [filename.book]

DESCRIPTION


HTMLDOC converts HTML source files into indexed HTML, PostScript, or Portable Document
Format (PDF) files that can be viewed online or printed. With no options a HTML document
is produced on stdout.

The second form of HTMLDOC reads HTML source from stdin, which allows you to use HTMLDOC
as a filter.

The third form of HTMLDOC launches a graphical interface that allows you to change options
and generate documents interactively.

COMMON MISTAKES


There are two types of HTML files - structured documents using headings (H1, H2, etc.)
which HTMLDOC calls "books", and unstructured documents that do not use headings which
HTMLDOC calls "web pages".

A very common mistake is to try converting a web page using:

htmldoc -f filename.pdf filename.html

which will likely produce a PDF file with no pages. To convert web page files you must use
the --webpage or --continuous options at the command-line or choose Web Page or Continuous
in the input tab of the GUI.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES


HTMLDOC looks for several environment variables which can override the default
directories, display additional debugging information, and disable CGI mode:

HTMLDOC_DATA
This environment variable specifies the location of HTMLDOC's data and fonts
directories, normally /usr/share/htmldoc or C:\Program Files\Easy Software
Products\HTMLDOC.

HTMLDOC_DEBUG
This environment variable enables debugging information that is sent to stderr. The
value is a list of any of the following keywords separated by spaces: "all", "links",
"memory", "remotebytes", "table", "tempfiles", and/or "timing".

HTMLDOC_HELP
This environment variable specifies the location of HTMLDOC's documentation
directory, normally /usr/share/doc/htmldoc or C:\Program Files\Easy Software
Products\HTMLDOC\doc.

HTMLDOC_NOCGI
This environment variable, when set (the value doesn't matter), disables CGI mode. It
is most useful for using HTMLDOC on a web server from a scripting language or
invocation from a program.
