NAME

LaTeX::Driver::FilterProgram - LaTeX driver (FilterProgram)

VERSION

SYNOPSIS use LaTeX::Driver::FilterProgram; LaTeX::Driver::FilterProgram->execute(format => $format);

DESCRIPTION

This module is not intended to be used except by the programs "latex2pdf", "latex2ps" and "latex2dvi" that are included in the LaTeX::Driver distribution. It implements the guts of those filter programs. SUBROUTINES/METHODS "execute(%params)" This is the only method. It implements the guts of the filter programs, gathering the parameters for the "LaTeX::Driver" object constructor from the command line options, along with the options passed from the calling script, which should be the format option. Having constructed a driver object it then runs the driver. If the "-tt2" option is specified then the source document is taken to be a Template Toolkit template and a Template object is constructed and the template processed through that before being fed to the "LaTeX::Driver" module for latex formatting. Template variables may defined with the "-define" option and these are passed to the Template Toolkit processing stage (they are ignored if the "-tt2" option is not specified).

DIAGNOSTICS

The module invokes the "LaTeX::Driver" module and optionally the "Template" module. Any errors from those modules are propagated outwards.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

The module invokes the latex family of programs via the "LaTeX::Driver" module. Those programs have their own set of environment variables and configuration files.

DEPENDENCIES

The module requires that the Template Toolkit is installed for the "-tt2" option.

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None known.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

None known.
