HTML-FormatExternal turns HTML into plain text in Perl by dumping it through one of the external programs elinks, html2text, links, lynx, netrik, vilistextum, w3m or zen. The module interface is compatible with HTML::FormatText and other HTML::Formatter classes but all the work is done by the external programs.
