Microtron is a general-purpose microformat parser/transformer.

It can operate on the definition file included in Optimus, making it a close replacement for certain tasks, and can easily be extended with new formats without modifying the source. The primary advantages are speed (> 100x faster that Optimus for some operations), simplicity (single file) and small code size (currently < 200 lines).
