vpe – Source specials for PDF output

VPE is a system to make the equivalent of “source special” marks in a PDF file. Clicking on a mark will activate an editor, pointing at the source line that produced the text that was marked.

The system comprises a perl file (vpe.pl) and a package (vpe.sty); it will work with PDF files generated via /dvips, pdf (version 0.14 or better), and /V. Using the /dvips or pdf routes, the (pdf) processor should be run with shell escapes enabled.
