Automating Word with Perlby merrymonk (Hermit)

merrymonk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a Perl/Tk application to gather data. I want to produce a Word document with the resultsof manipulating this data. The Word document is standard and much like a form that can have graphics. I guess I will have to: • create some sort of data file; • start Word so that the contents of the data file can be used to populate a prepared Word document. I really would appreciate some guidance about how to do this.As ever some ‘starter’ Perl code would really be gratefully received.
