Per­lTeX is a com­bi­na­tion Perl script (perl­tex.pl) and LaTeX2e style file (perl­tex.sty) that, to­gether, give the user the abil­ity to de­fine LaTeX macros in terms of Perl code. Once de­fined, a Perl macro be­comes in­dis­tin­guish­able from any other LaTeX macro. Per­lTeX thereby com­bines LaTeX's type­set­ting power with Perl's pro­gramma­bil­ity. Ver­sion 2.1 works bet­ter across dif­fer­ent op­er­at­ing sys­tems, TeX dis­tri­bu­tions, and Perl ver­sions than its pre­de­ces­sors.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/perl­tex/ . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/perl­tex (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

perl­tex – De­fine macros in terms of Perl code

Perl is a com­bi­na­tion Perl script (perl­tex.pl) and pack­age (perl­tex.sty) that, to­gether, give the user the abil­ity to de­fine macros in terms of Perl code. Once de­fined, a Perl macro be­comes in­dis­tin­guish­able from any other macro. Perl thereby com­bines 's type­set­ting power with Perl's pro­gramma­bil­ity. Perl will make use of per­sis­tent named pipes, and thereby run more ef­fi­ciently, on op­er­at­ing sys­tems that of­fer them (mostly Unix-like sys­tems).

Also pro­vided is a switch to gen­er­ate a Perl-free, doc­u­ment-spe­cific, nop­erl­tex.sty that is use­ful when dis­tribut­ing a doc­u­ment to places where Perl is not avail­able.
