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.
