Generate a TOC for a textile file

Tagged ruby, redcloth, textile, toc generation  Languages ruby

Takes a textile document as input (reads from a file) and generates a TOC (Table Of Contents) for it. The resulting output is a complete HTML document with the TOC and your document integrated. Requires Redcloth. Usage:

ruby ./textile_to_html_with_toc.rb my_textile_document.tex > my_textile_document.html

NOTE: Does not work with direct copy & paste because of a problem of correctly displaying the escaping quotes of the here document.
