dwww-convert - convert files to HTML for dwww
dwww-convert [--no-path-info] type location
dwww-convert is part of the dwww package, which provides access to on-line documentation
on a Debian system via WWW. dwww-convert converts documentation to HTML so that it can be
viewed with a WWW browser. dwww-convert is usually run by the WWW server, but can also be
run by hand.
The type argument gives the type of the file, one of:
file An arbitrary file; the type is guessed using simple heuristics based on the file‐
dir A directory. If the directory contains the file index.html or index.htm that file
will be returned. Otherwise, A listing of the files in the directory is generated.
html An HTML file. The file is returned as is.
man A manual page. The location is the pathname of the nroff source file.
runman A manual page. The location is the name of the manual page and its section, sepa‐
rated by a slash. For example, the location would be intro/1 to refer to the
intro(1) manual page.
info An Info file.
text A plain text file (using the ISO-8859-1 character set).
An unknown file type is treated as text.
The location argument gives the filename of the file. The name must be complete, i.e., it
must start at the root directory (/). The name must not contain any symbolic links (cf.
realpath(1)). The file must be located in or below a directory that has been allowed by
the system administrator; see dwww(7) for more info.
The file may be compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1). It is uncompressed automatically and
invisibly. Compression is indicated by a filename that ends in `.gz' or `.bz2'.
Internal option used by the dwww's CGI script to let dwww-convert know, that the
arguments following the option do not come from the PATH_INFO variable, but from
Configuration file for dwww. See dwww(7) for more information.
dwww(7), dwww-txt2html(8), dwww-build(8), dwww-cache(8).
