LaTeX::Table is a Perl extension for the automatic generation of LaTeX tables
LaTeX makes professional typesetting easy. Unfortunately, this is not
entirely true for tables and the standard LaTeX table macros have a rather
limited functionality. LaTeX::Table supports many CTAN packages and hides the
complexity of using them behind an easy and intuitive API.
This module supports multipage tables via the xtab and the longtable package.
For publication quality tables it utilizes the booktabs package. It also
supports the tabularx and tabulary packages for nicer fixed-width tables.
Furthermore, it supports the colortbl package for colored tables optimized for
presentations.  The powerful new ctable package is supported and especially
recommended when footnotes are needed. LaTeX::Table ships with some
predefined, good looking themes.
This module ships with two small utilities. The first, csv2pdf is a CSV to PDF
converter. It is only about 100 lines of code short and only meant as an
example application, but it is already very powerful. It requires Getopt::Long,
Text::CSV, LaTeX::Encode and LaTeX::Driver.
The second utility is ltpretty. It takes a lazy formatted LaTeX table from
STDIN (typically piped from Vim or emacs) and outputs a completely formatted
table. This makes this module not only useful for automatically generated
reports, but also saves a lot of typing work in creating custom tables.
