$ pdfwriter some-text-file.txt
See file 'some-text-file.txt.pdf'

DESCRIPTION

PDF::Writer is the "poor man's" word processor. It can turn text files into pdf documents now, with the ability for the user to control many aspects of the document including:

Here is an example of the author's current configuration file:

# Place these contents as file '$HOME/.pdfwriter/default.toml'
# in order to be found by 'pdfwriter'.
#
# Set the value of "default" to the name of the table
# to use for the current configuration defaults.
#
# Future plans are to allow an array of table names to
# be used.

default = "sent-rcvd"

[sent-rcvd]
leading-ratio = 1.35
font = "Courier"
size = 9.5
underline = 1

Some planned features
