Kwiki to TWiki Text File Converter

Convert Kwiki wiki content to TWiki file format


This script is a modification of TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny 's TWiki:Plugins.DolphinToTWikiAddOn for people who want to import content from TWiki:Main.BrianIngerson 's Kwiki into a TWiki.

Converts pretty much everything, although there are idiosyncrasies.

Metadata is not converted, however suitable default metadata is created.


I might as well copy liberally from Thoeny's documentation as well. wink

example% kwiki2twiki.pl fromDir toDir

fromDir: Directory containing Kwiki files
toDir: Directory where converted .txt and .txt,v files are stored

Attention: toDir is assumed to be empty. Existing files will be overwritten!
