Summary description: Converts text files for use with LaTeX by escaping special characters and fixing quote marks
License type: pd

Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a small Perl script intended to facilitate batch conversion of 
largely unformatted ASCII text for use with LaTeX.  In contrast to txt2tex, 
it does not assume the document has any underlying structure.  Its sole 
purpose is to escape special LaTeX characters and to fix single and double 
quotation marks.
