$Id: README 64370 2022-09-13 01:04:05Z karl $ Originally written by Karl Berry, 2022. Public domain. This directory, Build/source/texk/bibtex-x, contains the sources for bibtex8 (supporting 8-bit character sets) and bibtexu (supporting Unicode). See the 00* and 01* files, and the man pages, for what documentation there is about the programs. (Not much.) History: bibtex8 was written first, by Niel Kempson and Alejandro Aguilar-Sierra, ca.1996. bibtexu was derived from bibtex8 by Yannis Haralambous and his students, ca.2009. Peter Breitenlohner integrated bibtexu into TeX Live, and the Japanese TeX Development Community (notably TANAKA Takuji) has brought it up to date in the years since. Both are now maintained as part of TeX Live. Please report bugs to email@example.com (https://lists.tug.org/tex-k). For general discussion, use firstname.lastname@example.org (https://lists.tug.org/biblio). ====================================================================== CTAN SOURCE TREE INFORMATION This CTAN source tree has been automatically extracted from the texk Subversion repository at svn://tug.org/texlive/trunk/Build/source/texk/. It is not possible to use the supplied configure script. In fact, if you call it; you will be told as such. This source can only be compiled in a texk build environment. You will need to download the whole environment, please refer to http://www.tug.org/texlive/svn/. It all boils down to a Subversion checkout of svn://tug.org/texlive/trunk/Build/source This will be the source tree that you can use for compilation. The CTAN directory is there for archival and informational purpose. For your convenience, the original configure script from the texk source tree is available in this directory as configure.texk. For the CTAN team, Joachim Schrod <email@example.com>
