Information about Multimarkdown 3.X can be found at Apparently this will run faster because it's not a Perl script. The markdown plug-in only uses the perl script for multi-markdown. I see that I could just replace /usr/bin/markdown with a renamed multimarkdown, but I'd rather not change the system file or uninstall the perl modules. Perhaps a custom Plugin/ or a clever way to set $markdown_sub would suffice, but I don't know perl. If I wanted to replace Plugin/ with something simple that didn't bother to check for Text::*Markdown, calling /home/me/bin/mymdwn instead, what would that look like? -- tjgolubi
