This pro­gram mas­sages plain text to make it more likely to safely pass through LaTeX. It can be run from the com­mand line, so you can do drive-by LaTeXing. Where it dif­fers from other such scripts al­ready on CTAN is that its in­ter­nal rou­tines can also be im­ported for use by other Python pro­grams, for in­stance one that makes doc­u­ments from text gath­ered on a web form.
