Raghu Series of OpenType fonts for Indian scripts

(Kb)
Description
OpenType

The OpenType font format is an extension of the TrueType font format. OpenType was  developed jointly by Microsoft and Adobe.  The Substitution (GSUB) and Positioning (GPOS) tables in an OpenType font provide the advanced typographic control needed for the shaping of Complex Text. OpenType is a registered trademark of Microsoft.
Raghu
GPL

Raghu series of fonts are OpenType fonts for Indic scripts based on the Visual Syllable standard of IndiX Compugraphy. Raghu and IndiX Compugraphy are rooted in the Unicode Standard. Raghu does not require specific OpenType Features to be set for shaping.  Only the visual order of characters matters. In each Raghu font, sufficient number of glyphs have been designed  and  are supported with adequate number of rule tables.

The shipped Raghu fonts are the smaller 'binary' version of the font suited for using the font. The non-shipped are the larger 'source' version with open OpenType tables. These are for the font and OpenType table developers.

This DEVPKG  contains the source of  the IndiX shaping engine that converts Indic text in Unicode to Glyphs from OpenType fonts. It does conversions (UTF-8 to UCS-2), tagging of the text with script and syllable, reordering of logical syllables to visual syllables, and conversion of the visual syllable of characters to a renderable syllable of glyphs. IndiX supports nine Indic scripts and comes with the required Raghu series of OpenType fonts. Vedic Sanskrit is added. The IndiX fonts are not in this DEVPKG.

The IndiX library is used in enabling X11 for Indic text and in the IndiX applications, oprint, netprint.

tar -xvjf IndiXDeveloper.tbz
will create an IndiX development tree rooted at priv6/. See  priv6/readme for further information.
