    If you can do with Template Toolkit, LaTeX to PDF is great.

    But if you want to produce Business Reports, like inventory lists, Invoices, Acoount Balances and so on, you need more precision. At least in my experience you do.

    Whenever I get the time (and I will, Real Soon Now, promise!) I will look into this again and rewrite/refactor a module I made long time ago for this purpose.
    • Excellent. I look forward to seeing the results. You might want to talk to Andrew Ford, as he is very keen to get other LaTeX functionality usable within Template Toolkit.

      For my purposes Template Toolkit provides the data and graphics needed to create the .tex file, then LaTeX takes over via Latex::Driver.
