Markdown parser for auto html link

Hi,

Does anyone know about a Markdown parser (or why not textile) that can
automatically interpret a string that looks like "http://…" as a
hyperlink?

I find it painful to type the square brackets and the parenthesis when I
just want to enter a short url that speaks for itself.

rdiscount claims to do this, although I've never used that particular
feature. It's pretty fast too.

Thanks! I am currently using rdiscount but had missed that feature when
reading the docs.

You can also use the ruby helper autolink() on the return from
whatever parser you use.

rdiscount will be faster so I'll use it for that purpose, thanks for the
tip though; I never knew about that method before.

You can't imagine how easier my life has just become!
