In this talk I will present Text::RewriteRules, a Perl (d'uh) module to rewrite textual documents. It supports different kinds of algorithms (fixed point, sliding cursor, etc) that are useful for different kind of document rewrite.

I will also focus on the relevance of document rewrite, presenting some real world examples, like the conversion of a weak-annotated textual dictionary to a full featured TEI XML document.
