Re: FDK and Filter to HTML?


If FM's filter does most of what you need, how about simply filtering
to HTML and then writing a Perl script to do whatever it is you need
to do.  In this way, if your Perl script is solid and handles all
appropriate exceptions, you would not have to worry about modifying
any filter you might write or post-filtering FDK processing you might
write as FM and its filtering changes with version changes.
