scripts default iconPapyrus Publisher's description

Papyrus is an open source XML reporting engine for Linux.

Papyrus is an open source XML reporting engine for Linux. Papyrus enables you to generate reports from a variety of different SQL databases. Your reports can be generated as PDF, PostScript, XML, HTML, DVI, Latex or straight ANSI text. Papyrus will correctly represent the reports in each of these outputted mediums with as much support as it can provide.
Papyrus reports are written in XML. This XML file contains SQL database queries, equations, formatting and layout. Reporting is done in a two phase process. In the first phase the SQL statements and equations are excuted. The second phase handles all the formatting and layout. While reports are normally printed, we have developed a number of different ways in which reports are generated.
There are three main reporting output engines: a Latex, ANSI and HTML version. Your reports do not need to be modified between output versions, so you can export to different media without problems. The latex version is normally used for generating PDF and PostScript reports and is best suited for paper printed reports. HTML is designed for reports for the web, which can be a powerful addition to any large web application. The ANSI was designed for line printers but is also useful in Unix for piping.
