DESCRIPTION
       blaze-add adds a blog post or a page to the BlazeBlogger repository. If
       a file is supplied, it adds the content of that file, otherwise an
       external text editor is opened for you. Note that there are several
       special forms and placeholders that can be used in the text, and that
       will be replaced with a proper data when the blog is generated.

   Special Forms
       <!-- break -->
           A mark to delimit a blog post synopsis.

   Placeholders
       %root%
           A relative path to the root directory of the blog.

       %home%
           A relative path to the index page of the blog.

       %page[id]%
           A relative path to a page with the supplied id.

       %post[id]%
           A relative path to a blog post with the supplied id.

       %tag[name]%
           A relative path to a tag with the supplied name.

OPTIONS
       -b directory, --blogdir directory
           Allows you to specify a directory in which the BlazeBlogger
           repository is placed. The default option is a current working
           directory.

       -E editor, --editor editor
           Allows you to specify an external text editor. When supplied, this
           option overrides the relevant configuration option.

       -t title, --title title
           Allows you to specify the title of a blog post or page.

       -a author, --author author
           Allows you to specify the author of a blog post or page.

       -d date, --date date
           Allows you to specify the date of publishing of a blog post or
           page.

       -k keywords, --keywords keywords
           Allows you to specify a comma-separated list of keywords attached
           to a blog post or page.

       -T tags, --tags tags
           Allows you to supply a comma-separated list of tags attached to a
           blog post.

       -u url, --url url
           Allows you to specify the url of a blog post or page. Allowed
           characters are letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores.

       -p, --page, --pages
           Tells blaze-add to add a page or pages.

       -P, --post, --posts
           Tells blaze-add to add a blog post or blog posts. This is the
           default option.

       -C, --no-processor
           Disables processing a blog post or page with an external
           application. For example, if you use Markdown to convert the
           lightweight markup language to the valid HTML output, this will
           enable you to write this particular post in plain HTML directly.

       -q, --quiet
           Disables displaying of unnecessary messages.

       -V, --verbose
           Enables displaying of all messages. This is the default option.

       -h, --help
           Displays usage information and exits.

       -v, --version
           Displays version information and exits.

ENVIRONMENT
       EDITOR
           Unless the core.editor option is set, BlazeBlogger tries to use
           system-wide settings to decide which editor to use.

EXAMPLE USAGE

         ~]$ blaze-add
