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 docu- ments 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. OPTIONS
The following command-line options are supported by HTMLDOC: --batch filename.book Generates the specified book file without opening the GUI. --bodycolor color Specifies the background color for all pages. --bodyfont {courier,helvetica,monospace,sans,serif,times} --textfont {courier,helvetica,monospace,sans,serif,times} Specifies the default typeface for all normal text. --bodyimage filename Specifies the background image that is tiled on all pages. --book Specifies that the HTML sources are structured (headings, chapters, etc.) --bottom margin Specifies the bottom margin in points (no suffix or ##pt), inches (##in), centimeters (##cm), or millimeters (##mm). --charset charset-id Specifies the ISO character set to use for the output. Supported charsets include some Windows code pages (cp-###), ISO 8859 sets 1-9, 14, and 15 (iso8859-##), and koi8-r. --color Specifies that PostScript or PDF output should be in color. --continuous Specifies that the HTML sources are unstructured (plain web pages.) No page breaks are inserted between each file or URL in the out- put. --datadir directory Specifies the location of the HTMLDOC data files, usually /usr/share/htmldoc or C:Program FilesHTMLDOC. --duplex Specifies that the output should be formatted for double-sided printing. --effectduration { 0.1..10.0 } Specifies the duration in seconds of PDF page transition effects. --embedfonts Specifies that fonts should be embedded in PDF and PostScript output. --encryption Enables encryption of PDF files. --fontsize size Specifies the default font size for body text. --fontspacing spacing Specifies the default line spacing for body text. The line spacing is a multiplier for the font size, so a value of 1.2 will provide an additional 20% of space between the lines. --footer fff Sets the page footer to use on body pages. See the HEADERS/FOOTERS FORMATS section below. --format format -t format Specifies the output format: html, htmlsep (separate HTML files for each heading in the table-of-contents), ps or ps2 (PostScript Level 2), ps1 (PostScript Level 1), ps3 (PostScript Level 3), pdf11 (PDF 1.1/Acrobat 2.0), pdf12 (PDF 1.2/Acrobat 3.0), pdf or pdf13 (PDF 1.3/Acrobat 4.0), or pdf14 (PDF 1.4/Acrobat 5.0). --gray Specifies that PostScript or PDF output should be grayscale. --header fff Sets the page header to use on body pages. See the HEADERS/FOOTERS FORMATS section below. --headfootfont font Sets the font to use on headers and footers. --headfootsize size Sets the size of the font to use on headers and footers. --headingfont typeface Sets the typeface to use for headings. --help Displays a summary of command-line options. --helpdir directory Specifies the location of the HTMLDOC on-line help files, usually /usr/share/doc/htmldoc or C:Program FilesHTMLDOCDOC. --jpeg[=quality] Sets the JPEG compression level to use for large images. A value of 0 disables JPEG compression. --left margin Specifies the left margin in points (no suffix or ##pt), inches (##in), centimeters (##cm), or millimeters (##mm). --linkcolor color Sets the color of links. --links Enables generation of links in PDF files (default). --linkstyle {plain,underline} Sets the style of links. --logoimage filename Specifies an image to be used as a logo in the header or footer in a PostScript or PDF document, and in the navigation bar of a HTML document. Note that you need to use the --header and/or --footer options with the l parameter or use the corresponding HTML page comments to display the logo image in the header or footer. --no-compression Disables compression of PostScript or PDF files. --no-duplex Disables double-sided printing. --no-embedfonts Specifies that fonts should not be embedded in PDF and PostScript output. --no-encryption Disables document encryption. --no-jpeg Disables JPEG compression of large images. --no-links Disables generation of links in a PDF document. --no-numbered Disables automatic heading numbering. --no-pscommands Disables generation of PostScript setpagedevice commands. --no-strict Disables strict HTML input checking. --no-title Disables generation of a title page. --no-toc Disables generation of a table of contents. --numbered Numbers all headings in a document. --nup pages Sets the number of pages that are placed on each output page. Valid values are 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, and 16. --outdir directory -d directory Specifies that output should be sent to a directory in multiple files. (Not compatible with PDF output) --outfile filename -f filename Specifies that output should be sent to a single file. --owner-password password Sets the owner password for encrypted PDF files. --pageduration {1.0..60.0} Sets the view duration of a page in a PDF document. --pageeffect effect Specifies the page transition effect for all pages; this attribute is ignored by all Adobe PDF viewers... --pagelayout {single,one,twoleft,tworight} Specifies the initial layout of pages for a PDF file. --pagemode {document,outlines,fullscreen} Specifies the initial viewing mode for a PDF file. --path Specifies a search path for files in a document. --permissions permission[,permission,...] Specifies document permissions for encrypted PDF files. The following permissions are understood: all, none, annotate, no-annotate, copy, no-copy, modify, no-modify, print, and no-print. Separate multiple permissions with commas. --pscommands Specifies that PostScript setpagedevice commands should be included in the output. --quiet Suppresses all messages, even error messages. --referer url Specifies the URL that is passed in the Referer: field of HTTP requests. --right margin Specifies the right margin in points (no suffix or ##pt), inches (##in), centimeters (##cm), or millimeters (##mm). --size pagesize Specifies the page size using a standard name or in points (no suffix or ##x##pt), inches (##x##in), centimeters (##x##cm), or mil- limeters (##x##mm). The standard sizes that are currently recognized are "letter" (8.5x11in), "legal" (8.5x14in), "a4" (210x297mm), and "universal" (8.27x11in). --strict Enables strict HTML input checking. --textcolor color Specifies the default color of all text. --title Enables the generation of a title page. --titlefile filename --titleimage filename Specifies the file to use for the title page.

A page break is inserted between each file or URL in the output. HEADER
/FOOTER FORMATS The header and footer of each page can contain up to three preformatted values. These values are specified using a single character for the left, middle, and right of the page, resulting in the fff notation shown previously. Each character can be one of the following: blank / n/N arabic page numbers (1/3, 2/3, 3/3) : c/C arabic chapter page numbers (1/2, 2/2, 1/4, 2/4, ...) 1 arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ...) a lowercase letters A uppercase letters c current chapter heading C current chapter page number (arabic) d current date D current date and time h current heading i lowercase roman numerals I uppercase roman numerals l logo image t title text T current time 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 FilesEasy Software ProductsHTMLDOC. 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 FilesEasy Software ProductsHTMLDOCdoc. 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. SEE ALSO
