in reply to using perl to build documents off of pdf templates

Another solution which may be worth looking at is to convert your pdf to postscript (with something like ghostscript). Postscript is an open format and the file format is text so you can edit it any-way you like with perl :) It wouldn't make a lot of sense to go this way if your template was changing often or if you were doing a substantial edit but for changing one value (if I have understood you correctly) it might be a neat hack.

    That's a great idea. The template was made in illustrator, so i can just save to an eps file. I'm sure there will be a mod or something to convert that file to pdf!
