## NAME

LaTeX::Table - Perl extension for the automatic generation of LaTeX tables.

## VERSION

This document describes LaTeX::Table version 1.0.6

## EXAMPLES

See examples/examples.pdf in this distribution for a short tutorial that covers the main features of this module. See also the example application csv2pdf for an example of the common task of converting a CSV (or Excel) file to LaTeX or even PDF.

## DIAGNOSTICS

If you get a LaTeX error message, please check whether you have included all required packages. The packages we use are "array", "booktabs", "colortbl", "ctable", "graphicx", "longtable", "lscape", "rotating", "tabularx", "tabulary", "xcolor" and "xtab". "LaTeX::Table" may throw one of these errors: "IO error: Can't ..." In method generate(), it was not possible to write the LaTeX code to "filename". "Invalid usage of option ..." In method generate() or generate_string(). See the examples in this document and in examples/examples.pdf for the correct usage of this option. "Attribute (option) ... " In method new() or set_option(). You passed a wrong type to the option. See this document or examples/examples.pdf for the correct usage of this option.

## CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

"LaTeX::Table" requires no configuration files or environment variables.

## DEPENDENCIES

Carp, Module::Pluggable, Moose, English, Scalar::Util, Template

## BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

The "width" option causes problems with themes using the "colortbl" package. You may have to specify here the overhang arguments of the "\columcolor" commands manually. Patches are of course welcome. Problems with the "width" option are also known for tables of type longtable. You should use the "tabularx" package as described in the "width_environment" documentation. Please report any bugs or feature requests to "@rt.cpan.org", or through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org>.
