The most excellent lay-out language meets the most excellent programming language: LaTeX and Perl, a marriage made in heaven.

This talk will focus on how to integrate LaTeX into your Perl projects; how to use Perl as a glue language to control LaTeX as part of your publishing toolchain and will give an overview of the modules and scripts available on (and off) CPAN that deal with LaTeX.

Aimed at beginning and intermediary level Perl users. No prior knowledge of LaTeX is required.
