I'm doing the exact same thing, but without creating a temporary file:

my $template = "[% TT LATEX STUFF %]";
my $t = Template::Alloy->new;
my $out;
$t->process(\$template, {stash => 'bar'}, \$out) || die $@;
my $output = IO::String->new($out);
my $string = $output->string_ref;
$c->response->content_length( length $$string );

You can probably skip the IO::String object...

That's about it.
