I want to make a number of badges using LaTeX for the participants of a summer school. There are 40 or so people, so I don't want to manually change the name and compile and then print. I could think of:
Making a single document with a dropdown box with 40 choices. I don't know if it is possible to automate the choosing and printing in this case.
Using a script language such as python to call latex to do the job. But I have 0 experience with Python, and I didn't find a foolproof tutorial on the web (probably because of wrong search keywords).
So...I'm waiting for you guys to come up with a good solution :-).
