Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings Monks,

I am using perl to combine dozens of files into a single LibreOffice odt document. I have been successful with text files and code files using the following:

use OpenOffice::Doc;
$doc = odfDocument(file => "document_name.odt");
$doc -> appendParagraph(text => "some text", style => 'text body');
$doc -> save;

Now that I am working with 30-40 files I want to add in some odt files that contain pictures, drawings, etc. I have looked for things like "$doc -> appendDocument" or "$doc = $doc1 + $doc2" but I can't seem to find anything that works. This seems like such a simple thing to do compared to all the ooDoc examples available on the web. I must be missing something obvious. How can I append a odt file (with pictures, tables, etc.) to a document that I am building using ooDoc?
