Check out my latest Perlscript, which generates a book layout as a PDF from a plain text file. The stories are written by elementary school students, and my job is to split the narrative into pages, one per student, with large frames for the kids to draw illustrations. The script automatically resizes the frame to allow for text and leading, and it automatically increments the page number in the lower right-hand corner.
The first page is just a big empty frame because the title page is 100% illustration. But don't stop there ... turn the page for the rest of the story!
