I require a bash script to read a text file and create a HTML document.
The text file below has some of the titles, bullet points * and data that would need formatting. I would like the script to be able to create the titles of each section in Heading format, then some text in bullet points, some in bold and some in free text.
to do this I am happy to write a character or tag to each line so the script knows how to handle it. i.e <H> heading <B> bold <O> bullet <F> free etc.
I would want the script to loop until each section has been completed in the text file.
