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.
