Perl OpenDocument Connector
The Open OpenDocument Connector is a Perl-based application programming interface, which can be regarded as a way to build bridges between office documents and business applications. It allows the applications to directly create, retrieve, export, update or remove any content or layout element in OpenDocument-compliant files through a powerful scripting language.
In a few words, this toolbox is designed in order to allow back-office applications to get or set almost anything in the OpenDocument files in a database-like way.
Its main purposes are:
- document generation or update by enterprise applications (ex: reporting);
- data check and capture in documents by enterprise applications (ex: form processing).
