Class HtmlToPlainText


public class HtmlToPlainText
extends Object
HTML to plain-text. This example program demonstrates the use of jsoup to convert HTML input to lightly-formatted plain-text. That is divergent from the general goal of jsoup's .text() methods, which is to get clean data from a scrape.

Note that this is a fairly simplistic formatter -- for real world use you'll want to embrace and extend.

To invoke from the command line, assuming you've downloaded the jsoup jar to your current directory:

java -cp jsoup.jar org.jsoup.examples.HtmlToPlainText url [selector]

where url is the URL to fetch, and selector is an optional CSS selector.
