I often find myself editing files for my personal use that are plaintext. Either those are notes, annotations in project directories or sometimes the output of programs that I annotate.
However, sometimes I need to make a "nicer" document out of these plain text files in either MS Word or Latex. Now my question is: is there a simple tool that allows me to convert my plain text files into let's say directly a pdf, tex or doc for further editing that takes Wiki-Syntax into account?
I.e. I'm looking for a rapid prototyping tool for documents where I can annotate them in plain text with a syntax that is as simple as possible but then creates more complicated documents out of them for further editing.
