Generate a Table of Contents for HTML documents

HTMLGenToc generates anchors and a table of contents for HTML documents. Depending on the arguments, it will insert the information it generates, or output to a string, a separate file or STDOUT.

While it defaults to taking H1 and H2 elements as the significant elements to put into the table of contents, any tag can be defined as a significant element. Also, it doesn’t matter if the input HTML code is complete, pure HTML, one can input pseudo-html or page-fragments, which makes it suitable for using on templates and HTML meta-languages such as WML.

Also included in the distrubution is hypertoc, a script which uses the module so that one can process files on the command-line in a user-friendly manner.
