HTML to text converter. Does the filename html2text sound familiar to you?


Once an lqer gave me a script with the ability to transform HTM/HTML to an ASCII file. It's name was htm[l]2[to]txt[text], where the brackets indicate the token is optional. Dos this name sound familiar to you?

Google got me this:

There's even one on SBo (albeit from a different author... this one uses Python and outputs in valid Markdown).
