use HTML::FormatText::Lynx; $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_file ($filename); $text = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->format_string ($html_string); $formatter = HTML::FormatText::Lynx->new (rightmargin => 60); $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_file ($filename); $text = $formatter->format ($tree);

Prior to the
-nomargins option of Lynx 2.8.6dev.12 (June 2005) an additional 3 space margin is always applied within the requested left and right positions.
Note that "latin-1" etc is not accepted, it must be "iso-8859-1" etc.
output_charset becomes the
-display_charset option and can't be used on very old

-justify is passed to lynx to have all lines in the paragraph padded out with extra spaces to the given
rightmargin (or default right margin).
