Someone (you, or the respondents, or some combination of those) has
omitted a few steps there, and what you've said here has become a non
sequitur: I can't see the path you've taken from “scripting WordPerfect
with Python” to “LaTeX”.

How does this relate to Python? (If it relates only to WordPerfect or
LaTeX, you're in the wrong forum, so I assume there must be some
particular relevance to Python.)

About LaTeX? <URL:> seems the obvious

If you want something more specific, please be more specific with the
