in reply to Perl and Address labels, oh yeah!

Too bad I didn't see this two years ago, before sending out the "Save the date" cards for our wedding

  • Get the addresses off a certain sheet
  • Do some internationalization munging
  • Format and append to a Latex document
  • Call Latex and dvips
The formating I wanted was slightly different from an Avery label, in that it had to 'fold over' inside a translucent envelope ... long story
