' Papyrus' is a XML-based reporting language for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and bonddb. It can generate well-formatted reports in LaTeX, PDF, PostScript, HTML, ANSI, and XML. The XML is expressed in a formatting-oriented style to allow you to develop a wide range of reports. SQL is then embedded into the report to give you the desired data. Papyrus is command-line driven, and data arguments can be passed into the report. Equations and expressions can also be carried out on data.
