+markdown2odt - converts markdown-formatted text to ODT
+markdown2odt [*options*] [*input-file*]...
+`markdown2odt` converts *input-file* (or text from standard
+input) from markdown-formatted plain text to ODT (OpenDocument
+Text) format. If no output filename is specified (using the `-o`
+option), the name of the output file is derived from the input file;
+thus, for example, if the input file is *hello.txt*, the output file
+will be *hello.odt*. If the input is read from STDIN and no output
+filename is specified, the output file will be named *stdin.odt*. If
+multiple input files are specified, they will be concatenated before
+conversion, and the name of the output file will be derived from the
+first input file.
+Input is assumed to be in the UTF-8 character encoding. If your
+local character encoding is not UTF-8, you should pipe input
+through `iconv`:
+ iconv -t utf-8 input.txt | markdown2odt
+`markdown2odt` is a wrapper around `pandoc`, so all of
+`pandoc`'s options can be used with `markdown2odt` as well.
+See `pandoc`(1) for a complete list.
+The following options are most relevant:
+-o *FILE*, \--output=*FILE*
+: Write output to *FILE*.
+: Use strict markdown syntax, with no extensions or variants.
+-S, \--smart
+: Use smart quotes, dashes, and ellipses. (This option is significant
+ only when the input format is `markdown`. It is selected automatically
+ when the output format is `latex` or `context`.)
