pp2html is a PerlPoint to HTML converter.
pp2html [@options_file] [options] slide_text
pp2html creates a set of HTML files for a foilset based on a simple textfile slide_text. Due to its formatting features and the capability of creating navigation, table of contents and index pages, pp2html is also a suitable tool for writing online documentation.
A slide is normally made up by a header and a number of bullet items:
=Example of a Slide
* Contains a head line ("Example of a Slide")
* Should have some bullet items
* May have footer and/or header section with company logo
and navigation links
The intention of pp2html is to simply write down your headers and bullet items just like above in an ASCII file and then automatically create a set of HTML files ready for presentation.
The main features of pp2html are:
Simple ASCII input file for your text
Optional templates for header and footer of the slides (e.g. for company logo, hyperlinks for navigation, copyright note etc.)
Rudimentary formatting capabilities
Creation of a contents page with links to all slides
Creation of an index page with links to all keywords which have been indexed
Optional layout as HTML frame set (header frame, contents frame, footer frame and eventually index frame). The footer frame has always the same position on the screen.
The index frame may use a TreeApplet which provides convenient access to all pages.

The PerlPoint-Converters package contains an older version of the tree applet. The new release of the tree applet is not yet supported.
