Hi everyone, I am generating pdf file by using perl template-toolkit, I am reading xml file and processing through template toolkit and compiling using pdf latex.I written script like this

<code> #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; use XML::Simple; use Template; my $xml = new XML::Simple; my $data = $xml->XMLin("data.xml", ForceArray=>['dat','employee','expe +rience']); #print Dumper($data); my $template = Template->new(); my $filename = 'output1.tex'; $template->process(\*DATA, $data, $filename) || die "Template process failed: ", $template->error(), "\n"; system( "pdflatex $filename" ); __DATA__ \documentclass[a4paper,leqno,twoside]{article} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} \begin{document} Issued by {Name, acronym, department, phone} \issuedby{veerubiji,vebi,ece,123456} % Document title. Use \doctitleShort{} to insert a shorter title in th +e header. \doctitle{employee information of thie"scr"company} \doctitleShort{\@doctitle} [% FOREACH comp IN company %] [% %] [% comp.location%] employeedata: [% FOREACH employee IN %] [% %][% employee.number %] [% FOREACH obj IN data%] [% FOREACH beha IN obj.employee %] [% IF beha.number == employee.number && == + %] [% beha.address %], [% LAST %] [% END %] [% END %] [% END %] [% END %] [% END %] [% END %] \end{document}
