- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
SQLTeX is a well documented preprocessor to enable the use of SQL statements 
in LaTeX . It is a perl script that reads an input file containing the LaTeX 
source with SQL commands, and writes a LaTeX file that can be processed with 
your LaTeX package. 

The SQL commands will be replaced by their values. It's possible to select a 
single field for substitution substitution in your LaTeX document, or to be 
used as input in another SQL command. 

When an SQL command returns multiple fields and or rows, the values can only 
be used for substitution in the document. 

This version only supports MySQL databases. It has been tested on Linux, but 
should work an all platforms where Perl is installed.
