driver module that encapsulates the details of formatting a LaTeX document


The LaTeX::Driver module encapsulates the details of invoking the LaTeX programs to format a LaTeX document. Formatting with LaTeX is complicated; there are potentially many programs to run and the output of those programs must be monitored to determine whether further processing is required.

LaTeX::Driver runs the required commands in the directory specified, either explicitly with the dirname option or implicitly by the directory part of basename, or in the current directory. As a result of the processing up to a dozen or more intermediate files are created. These can be removed with the cleanup method.

The LaTeX::Driver module takes care of running and re-running latex on a LaTeX document so that forward references, tables of contents, and lists of figures and tables are resolved. It will also run bibtex and makeindex if it detects that a bibliography or in index have been specified, and will re-run latex again one or more times until the formatting of the document has stabilized.
