# DESCRIPTION
`markdown2pdf` converts *input-file* (or text from standard
-input) from markdown-formatted plain text to PDF, using `pdflatex`.
-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.pdf*. If the input is read from STDIN and no output filename
-is specified, the output file will be named *stdin.pdf*. 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.
