in reply to Perl and Address labels, oh yeah!

It would be interesting to see how PostScript:: MailLabels matches up against PDF::Labels. I just answered a question about it yesterday, so I'm curious.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    I looked at PDF::Labels too, but it didn't say the magic word "Avery". It looks like PDF::Labels just puts lines on the page (which is what I want), but on the other hand requires a bit more to set up the boundaries of each label.

    I think I would spend about the same amount of time using each one, but futsing with different things. I think PostScript::MailLabels is a good lower-level module, but if I was going to use it more than every couple of months I'd build a layer on top of it so I didn't have to look at it again.

    I still have the international labels to do, so maybe I'll give PDF::Labels a spin. I can steal the label layout data from PostScript::MailLabels or Microsoft Word (or my ruler).
