Shell script for converting a batch of *.md files into *.rst using pandoc.
# This script was created to convert a directory full
# of markdown files into rst equivalents. It uses
# pandoc to do the conversion.
#
# 1. Install pandoc from http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/
# 2. Copy this script into the directory containing the .md files
# 3. Ensure that the script has execute permissions
# 4. Run the script
#
# By default this will keep the original .md file
FILES=*.md
for f in $FILES
do
# extension="${f##*.}"
filename="${f%.*}"
echo "Converting $f to $filename.rst"
`pandoc $f -t rst -o $filename.rst`
# uncomment this line to delete the source file.
# rm $f
done
