Pandoc

Executes Pandoc with user given switches. Use to convert markdown, or any other wiki style structured document to other presentation types, like LaTeX, HTML, or PDF. Markdown is a ascii friendly way of formatting text for inline code, or e-mail environments. In addition this component can convert CSV to markdown tables! But note, there are several markdown flavours to be selected from.
