MMD2PDF, a command line utility, converts MultiMarkDown text files to PDF documents, adding a few extra's like options to include webpages and support for page-breaks.
It is a portable utility, it will leave no traces in registry or on your file system.
MMD2PDF can handle a file list so it can be used to create a book in MultiMarkdown. It has also support for different styles (using css) and can store its settings in a .ini file in the same directory as the text file(s). This way you can create PDF's with different styles i.e. in different colors or for presentations (PDF slides).
