NAME
       ltpretty	- Use LaTeX::Table from	within your text editor.

SYNOPSIS
	 ltpretty < lazytable

DESCRIPTION
       This program takes a lazy formatted LaTeX table from STDIN (typically
       piped from Vim or emacs)	and outputs a completely formatted table.

LAZY FORMAT
       The first line must contain the LaTeX::Table options (separated by
       semicolons ";") in the format "optionname=value". The second line must
       contain the header, the following lines the data.  Columns are
       separated by "&". Trailing empty	lines are ignored, other empty lines
       generate	horizontal rules (as in	LaTeX::Table).

EXAMPLE
	  theme=Meyrin;label=test;position=htb
	  Item:2c & Price
	  Gnat&	per gram& 13.65
	  & each& 0.01

	  Gnu& stuffed&	92.59
	  Emu& stuffed&	33.33
	  Armadillo& frozen& 8.99

VIM
       1. Select the text in "VISUAL LINE" mode	("shift+v").
       2. Type "!ltpretty"

EMACS
       1. Select the text
       2. Press	"alt+|"
       3. Now "Shell command on	region"	should appear. Type "ltpretty"

OUTPUT
	  % theme=Meyrin;label=test;position=htb
	  % Item:2c & Price
	  % Gnat& per gram& 13.65
	  % & each& 0.01
	  %
	  % Gnu& stuffed& 92.59
	  % Emu& stuffed& 33.33
	  % Armadillo& frozen& 8.99

	 \begin{table}[htb]
	 \centering
	 \begin{tabular}{llr}
	 \toprule
	 \multicolumn{2}{c}{Item} & Price \\
	 \midrule
	 Gnat	   & per gram &	13.65 \\
		   & each     &	0.01  \\
	 \midrule
	 Gnu	   & stuffed  &	92.59 \\
	 Emu	   & stuffed  &	33.33 \\
	 Armadillo & frozen   &	8.99  \\
	 \bottomrule
	 \end{tabular}
	 \label{test}
	 \end{table}

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT
       "ltpretty" does not support configuration files or environment
       variables.

DEPENDENCIES
       LaTeX::Table

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
       Our lazy	format does not	support	multi-line headers. Just add the other
       header lines afterwards.	More importantly, it currently does not
       support non-scalar LaTeX::Table options like for	example
       "columns_like_header".  A future	version	may add	this functionality.

       Please report any bugs or feature requests to
       "bug-latex-table@rt.cpan.org", or through the web interface at
       <http://rt.cpan.org>.
