I had a bit of spare time today, so I modified the PDF music catalogue
creator script and uploaded the new version onto my RTFM website's
downloads page.

Anyone who's interested can get the script from here:


Read the comments at the top of the file before you run it, as there
are some prerequisite Perl modules that you may need to install, and
there are some variables that you will need to tweak.

Only tested and "supported" on Linux. In a world without walls and
fences there's no need for windows nor gates.

I don't use "album art", so I've not implemented that at all. Any
patches to support this, or the other TODO items listed in the comments,
will be welcome.

Have fun.
