Kwiki to TWiki Text File Converter
Convert Kwiki wiki content to TWiki file format
This script is a modification of TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny
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.
example% kwiki2twiki.pl fromDir toDir
| Directory containing Kwiki files
| Directory where converted .txt and .txt,v files are stored
is assumed to be empty. Existing files will be overwritten!
