README for ttt (Tibetan Transcript Translator)
==============================================

IMPORTANT
---------

This Package only supplies the Tibetan Transcript Translator.
You must have Sam Sirlin's font(*.mf), font metrics (*.tfm) 
and tibdef.tex installed! If you don't have Metafont or work
on an old LaTeX version, follow the special instructions in
INSTALL.HOW.

Please look at ...

  the remarks at the top of the c source code.
  INSTALL.HOW
  tttintro.*
  The documentation supplied with the other two packages.


FEATURES
--------

This program is able to typeset many syllables which originate from
Sanskrit. Tables and inline LaTeX commands are also supported. 
You can import ACIP transcribed texts into LaTeX.
Look at tttintro.* for further info.


DISADVANTAGES
-------------

More complex command line.
The vovels on tsa, tsha and dza are not specially handled and don't
look as nice as in the other implementations. The same applies to
cu and tsu, which are not confused any more. You will have to 
remove such workarounds from your texts.


THANKS
------

to Jeff Sparkes and Sam Sirlin for their previous implementations,
which supplied me the fonts and some good ideas for the ttt program.

ttt – A Ti­betan Tran­script Translit­er­a­tor for LaTeX

The tran­scrip­tions work with Sir­lin's fonts and macros, but the tran­scriber man­ages bet­ter sup­port (par­tic­u­larly of lig­a­tures) than other ap­proaches to Ti­betan.
