C++ API to Export MD to MARKDOWN

Render MD to MARKDOWN within C++ applications without requiring any third party application

 

Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert MD to MARKDOWN in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert MD file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to MARKDOWN.

C++ API to Render MD to MARKDOWN

  1. Open MD file using Document class reference
  2. Convert MD to DOC by using Save member function
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class reference of Aspose.Words API
  4. Save the document to MARKDOWN format using Save member function

Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs

Install from command line as nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with Install-Package Aspose.Total.Cpp.

Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

// load MD file with an instance of Document class reference
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.md");
// save MD as a DOC 
doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); 
// load DOC with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc");
// save document as Markdown
wordDoc->Save(u"output.Markdown");  

Change Password of MD Document via C++

In the process of rendering MD to MARKDOWN, you can open a password protected MD and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MD file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.

// load an existing MD Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.md", L"owner");
// change password of MD Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document
doc->Save(L"output.Doc");

Restrict MARKDOWN File Editing via C++

You can also restrict MARKDOWN file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.

// load Doc with an instance of Document
auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc");
// document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");
// save the protected document.
doc->Save(u"Protected.Markdown");
