This archive contains a test release of LaTeX Tibetan. It is free software. Some bugs probably remain. LaTeX Tibetan is free software. See the file COPYING for copying conditions. ========================================================================== This package was obtained from Ronald Schwartz at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. It provides a LaTeX front-end for writing modern Tibetan. Directions are in the file called instruct (in the doc/instruct.ps file). =========================================================================== Notes added in June 1994 by Dominik Wujastyk (email@example.com): Development of this package seems to have halted, at least for the present. For information about the package, the contact person is Robert Knight <KNIGHT@PUCC.EARN>. Neither Robert nor I can any longer contact Ron Schwartz or Jeff Sparkes. Robert noted recently that: I believe that Ron's intention was that anyone who wanted it could have it with the proviso that they not try to make money from his work. He had the help of a programmer who was not compensated. The GNU font utilites could probably be applied to the font and a decent METAFONT made from it. If the package is put out, that might happen faster than it is with me. Please put some sort of disclaimer that will protect Jeff Sparkes' (the programmer's) investment in time. I (Dominik) have added a Makefile modified to work with Mattes's emx/gcc sytem under OS/2, and I have added a file bin/tfilt.exe which an executable for OS/2 or DOS. It is bound with emx.exe, and under DOS it requires an 80386 processor or better and DOS version 3.0 or higher. I have also added the GNU public license to protect the rights of future users of this package and any derivatives.
