Unfortunately there are a few lines of C code missing to get this done. It
was always my intention to make such a usage possible, but I didn't got
around until now to implement the last piece :-(

So one possiblilty is that somebody writes this C code.

The other one is to create a syntax module, which uses HTML::TextToHTML for
the actual work.

To do so, just make a copy of Embperl/Syntax/, then in the call to
AddInitCode you would pass some code like:


 use HTML::TextToHTML ;

 local $/ = undef ;
 my $text = <DATA> ;
 my $html =  HTML::TextToHTML::<whatever you want to do> ($text) ;
 print OUT $html ;
