This plugin allows ikiwiki to process pages written in the original wiki
text format. To use it, you need to have the Text::WikiFormat perl
module installed, enable the plugin, then files with the extention
will be processed as wiki text.
Wiki formatting is very simple. An item wrapped in three single quotes is strong. An item wrapped in two single quotes is emphasized. Four or more hyphen characters at the start of a line create a horizontal line. Newlines turn into the appropriate tags. Headers are matching equals signs around the header text -- the more signs, the lesser the header.
Lists are indented text, by one tab or four spaces. In unordered lists, where each item has its own bullet point, each item needs a leading asterisk and space. Ordered lists consist of items marked with combination of one or more alphanumeric characters followed by a period and an optional space. Any indented text without either marking is code, handled literally. You can nest lists.
