|THEME(1)||General Commands Manual||THEME(1)|
themeutility takes a markdown(7)-formatted textfile (or stdin if not specified,) compiles it, and combines it with a template (page.theme by default) to produce a web page. If a path to the template is not specified,
themelooks for page.theme in the current directory, then each parent directory up to the document root (set with
-dor, if unset, the root directory of the system.) If page.theme is found,
themecopies it to the output, looking for <?theme action?> html tags and processing the embedded action as appropriate.
theme processes the following actions:
- Prints the author name(s) from the mkd_doc_author(3) function.
- Prints the formatted markdown(7) input file.
- Prints the date returned by mkd_doc_date(3) or, if none, the date the input file was last modified.
- Prints the directory part of the pagename
- Prints the contents of file. Markdown(7) translation will NOT be done on this file.
- The filename part of the pagename.
- Print any stylesheets (see mkd-extensions(7)) found in the input file.
- Print the title returned by mkd_doc_title(3), or, if that does not exist, the source filename.
- Print the version of discount(7) that this copy of theme was compiled with.

-Eoption overrides this and allows expansions everywhere.
- Forcibly overwrite existing html files.
- Write the output to filename.
- Set the pagename to path.
- Use filename as the template file.
themeutility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
