text files including some very simple commands to LaTeX files. 
Furthermore, it is also able to call other tools to automatically 
convert images into formats supported by LaTeX, to convert 
Excel tables to LaTeX tables, to create PDF output, to deal with
LaTeX commands, etc.

documents without having the need to convert every image and to 
type every figure environment by hand.
