Document translation

The moment you start writing a document, you get that nagging feeling that you made the wrong choice of format.  Sooner or later you end up having to convert everything you wrote to another format. Today, I discovered a tool that will get rid my choice anxiety and the hassle of manual conversion.

I was looking around for automatic converters from LaTeX to rST and stumbled upon¬†Pandoc. It took me all but one minute to download, install, and run it on my document. (Ok, maybe two minutes.) And I’m pretty happy with the quality of the job.
