ucs – Ex­tended UTF-8 in­put en­cod­ing sup­port for

The bun­dle pro­vides the ucs pack­age, and ut­f8x.def, to­gether with a large num­ber of sup­port files.

The ut­f8x.def def­i­ni­tion file for use with in­pu­tenc cov­ers a wider range of Uni­code char­ac­ters than does utf8.def in the dis­tri­bu­tion. The pack­age pro­vides fa­cil­i­ties for ef­fi­cient use of its large sets of Uni­code char­ac­ters.

Glyph pro­duc­tion may be con­trolled by var­i­ous op­tions, which per­mits use of non-ASCII char­ac­ters when cod­ing math­e­mat­i­cal for­mu­lae.

Note that the bun­dle pre­vi­ously had an alias “uni­code”; that alias has now been with­drawn, and no pack­age of that name now ex­ists.
