TeluguTeX --------- PLease read CopyrightLong file before proceeding. TeluguTeX enables you to typeset Telugu text using TeX/LaTex family of software. This package mainly contains two sets of programs. One set is used to create symbols used in composing Telugu text. These programs are written in METAFONT. The other set of programs use these symbols as componants to assemble Telugu text. These programs are written in TeX (macros). Once you have generated the fonts for the sizes and styles that you need you do not have to worry about the METAFONT programs( unless the output device changes). But you will always need the TeX programs to typeset Telugu text. Following is a list of files in this package: CopyrightLong - copyright notice. MUST BE READ CopyrightSources- copyright notice that appears in source files telugu.mf - defines font dimensions telparam.mf - defines parameters telbase.mf - contains macros for commonly occuring shapes telmode.mf - contains mode for the output device telcodes.mf - defines codes for all the symbols in the font telchars1.mf - contains program to generate vowels, consanant bases, vowel modifiers, consonant conjuncts and accents telchars2.mf - contains proggrams to generate consonant+vowel combinations that need new symbols telchars3.mf - contains programs to generate roman digits, telugu digits and punctuation symbols telfonts.awk - contains size/style specific parameters makefile - use this to generate the font(s) README - you are reading this file VERSION - This is the place to look if you want to know the version identification/history of changes document.tex - documentation( extracted from Lakshmi Mukkavilli's M.S report and modified) tlxlate.tex - implements transliteration tlsyllable.tex - composes a syllable tlteldigits.tex - defines telugu digits Next let us worry about installing TeluguTeX: Font contains 233 symbols. You need large METAFONT to generate these symbols. To typeset Telugu you need Big TeX. Typesetting Telugu is a very CPU intensive job. It is assumed that you are installing TeluguTeX under UNIX(tm). If you are installing TeluguTeX under UNIX(tm) then you can skip rest of this paragraph. METAFONT and TeX programs in this package are not dependent on UNIX, but make and awk programs are needed. If you do not have these programs then you will have to do some work. You will have to extract various parameter files from telfonts.awk and execute METAFONT on each parameter file. You will be essentially executing steps in makefile manually. Each parameter file in telfonts.awk begins with the pattern '%fontfilename%' and ends with a line containing just two % symbols('%%'). Some non-UNIX(tm) system limit the length of file names. On these systems you may have to rename some of the files. Steps in installation: 1. define mode for the output device in telmode.mf 2. copy tlsyllable.tex, tlxlate.tex and tlteldigits.tex to a directory from where TeX can read \input files. 3. copy following files to the directory that will contain the font files that you will generate. all .mf files telfonts.awk makefile (make sure that the destination directory does not contain 'makefile'.) 4. goto the directory to which all .mf files have been copied. 5. edit makefile a. change DPI to reflect the characteristics of of the output device. b. If you do not want to generate ALL fonts then define MYFONTS object listing the size/style combinations that you want. If you do not include all 12 size fonts then you can not print the documentation. Please read comments at the top of 'makefile'. Towards the end of this file we have included a list giving approximate sizes of various font(pk) files. You may want to look at that to get an idea about the storage requirement. 6. If you have not decided to generate ALL fonts then edit tlsyllable.tex to comment out those font definitions that invoke the font(s) that you have chosen to omit. You can do this by inserting a '%' sign in column one. 7. Enter 'make all' or 'make myfonts' depending on what you decided in step 5.b . 'make all' on SUN SPARCstation IPC takes about an hour. 8. as a result of 'make ..' tloffsets.tex must have been created. copy this file to the same directory as tlsyllable.tex. 9. print TeluguTex.tex (enter latex TeluguTeX) look at the examples. A note from the authors: we hope you will find this package useful for typesetting Telugu. TeluguTeX was developed by us when we were at Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, USA. Please direct your criticism/comments about TeluguTeX to email: firstname.lastname@example.org snailmail: 915 Almaden Avenue Sunnyvale, CA 94086 USA Amount of time we can spend on TeluguTeX is fairly limited, so please do not expect a prompt response. If you have questions about METAFONT, TeX, LaTeX, drivers etc. you should turn elsewhere. We assume that you know how to generate fonts using METAFONT, how to use TeX/LaTeX and how to produce output on whatever device you may have.
