Is there a way to have a conditional block inside Marked

Could be really powerful and useful to me.

I am thinking something like the #ifdef structure with the C pre-processor of yore.

    Based on what conditions?

    So, I was thinking that I have multiple resumes right now which I am targeting to different people and I would really like an ifdef type mechanism so I can say for example 


    on top and then inside the markdown doc I can say

    * Product manager for this awesome product 

    and then certain things will be included and not others.  



    PS: please dont post the above on the forum.

    This is the kind of thing that you'd want to use a custom pre-processor for. A simple script that read in keys at the top and then removed parts conditionally would be pretty easy to set up. Pre-processors run before rendering, and it's designed to allow manipulation of the text before it reaches the Markdown processor.
