Pandoc document converter work on HX (... useless ...) (DOSX)

YES :-(

Done!

Maybe the BEER or INNOUNP (see drdos.org Wiki) would do the job too ;-)

Bad idea to make this default :-(

> now try to convert the file readme.htm supplied using this command

Done!

Meant Open Office ODT ?


PD 1.4 - "pandoc.exe" has only 9 MiO
       - no "bin" (-Laden) exists
       - needs "PCRE3.DLL" (NOT included)
       - needs DOSNTLFN
       - needs many junk support files with junk (very long) names
       - missing import "OpenThread"
       - with DPMILDR=128 is starts and does nothing, then crashes
       - "--help" brews help
       - no useful formats supported
       - conversion from TXT into ODT fails with obscure error message

PD 1.9 - "pandoc.exe" has only 18 MiO
       - directory "bin" (-Laden) does exist
       - does not need "PCRE3.DLL"
       - needs DOSNTLFN
       - needs many junk support files with junk (very long) names
       - does not need import "OpenThread"
       - missing imports "freeaddrinfo" "getaddrinfo" "getnameinfo"
         in "WS2_32.dll" "WSOCK32.DLL"
       - with DPMILDR=128 is starts and does nothing
       - "--help" brews help
       - more junk formats than 1.9 offers, but still no
         useful ones supported
       - conversion from TXT into ODT takes centuries, pretends success
         if no input format specified, and brews ODT file,
         "thumbnail.png" is crap, OpenOffice not available to test
       - IN:  native, json, markdown, markdown+lhs, rst, rst+lhs,
              textile, html, latex, latex+lhs
       - OUT: native, json, html, html5, html+lhs, html5+lhs, s5, slidy,
              dzslides, docbook, opendocument, latex, latex+lhs, beamer,
              context, texinfo, man, markdown, markdown+lhs, plain, rst,
              rst+lhs, mediawiki, textile, rtf, org, asciidoc, odt,
              docx, epub


Unfurtunately, 1.9 can neither brew PDF, nor convert from PDF, nor convert from M$ RTFM, DOC, DOCX.

Does PANDOC work with HX ? Well, theoretically, some old versions, with trouble, YES.

Is PANDOC under HX useful ? Well, with current state of knowledge, NO :-(

If anyone finds a version able to do something useful under DOS, please let me know.
