    Name        : pandoc
    Product     : Fedora 31
    Version     : 2.5
    Release     : 2.fc31
    URL         : https://hackage.haskell.org/package/pandoc
    Summary     : Conversion between markup formats
    Description :
    Pandoc is a Haskell library for converting from one markup format to another,
    and a command-line tool that uses this library. It can read several dialects of
    Markdown and (subsets of) HTML, reStructuredText, LaTeX, DocBook, JATS,
    MediaWiki markup, TWiki markup, TikiWiki markup, Creole 1.0, Haddock markup,
    OPML, Emacs Org-Mode, Emacs Muse, txt2tags, Vimwiki, Word Docx, ODT, EPUB,
    FictionBook2, roff man, and Textile, and it can write Markdown,
    reStructuredText, XHTML, HTML 5, LaTeX, ConTeXt, DocBook, JATS, OPML, TEI,
    OpenDocument, ODT, Word docx, PowerPoint pptx, RTF, MediaWiki, DokuWiki,
    ZimWiki, Textile, roff man, roff ms, plain text, Emacs Org-Mode, AsciiDoc,
    Haddock markup, EPUB (v2 and v3), FictionBook2, InDesign ICML, Muse, LaTeX
    beamer slides, and several kinds of HTML/JavaScript slide shows (S5, Slidy,
    Slideous, DZSlides, reveal.js).
    
    In contrast to most existing tools for converting Markdown to HTML, pandoc has
    a modular design: it consists of a set of readers, which parse text in a given
    format and produce a native representation of the document, and a set of
    writers, which convert this native representation into a target format.
    Thus, adding an input or output format requires only adding a reader or writer.
    
    For pdf output please also install pandoc-pdf or weasyprint.
