Mods needed for migrating my blog from MovableType 4.x to WordPress 3.8
# mt-export-markdown.pl: Process Movable Type export files
# containing Markdown and Textile posts into pure HTML.
#
# Brian Cantoni
# 2004-04-18
#
# Modified from Mark Shroyer's original script:
# http://markshroyer.com/2010/10/mt-markdown-to-wp/
#
# Usage:
# 1. Export all posts from Movable Type into text file (ex: mt.txt)
# 2. Process text file thru this script (ex: perl conver.pl <mt.txt >wp.txt)
# 3. Import processed file (wp.txt) into WordPress

# If body looks like Textile
print textile ($source) . "\n";
}
else {
# Otherwise run it through the Markdown formatter
print markdown($source);
}
}
