Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 Checking my system, I have sgmlspl in /usr/local/bin.  It's the only file
 there, but I'm not sure how it got there.  Here is a diff:

 I use the cpan -i method for installing, but I don't remember creating
 /usr/local/bin/sgmlspl.

 The symlink should be fine.

 TeX is a good typesetting language for special uses.  I wrote a couple of
 applications that used it quite effectively for creating a document on a
 repetitive basis from changing sources.

 For the TeX install, you don't need to install everything.  The full
 install is quite large, but generally you only need TeX and dvi tools.
 The rest is somewhat more specialized.

 As a note, when I started using TeX, I tried LaTeX, but it couldn't do
 what I wanted, so I used plain TeX.  It's much more powerful than LaTeX
 and, IMO, easier to use.
