delig – Disable misplaced ligatures in LaTeX documents

DeLig dis­ables mis­placed lig­a­tures in LaTeX doc­u­ments, us­ing a dic­tio­nary ap­proach.

With its orig­i­nal fonts, LaTeX al­ways uses lig­a­tures for the let­ter com­bi­na­tions “ff”, “fi”, “fl”, “ffi” and “ffl”.

This is not al­ways cor­rect in the Ger­man lan­guage, e.g., the word “Au­flage” may not be printed with an “fl”-lig­a­ture, that is, the “fl”-lig­a­ture in “Au­flage” must be dis­abled.

This may be ac­com­plished by us­ing the ba­bel-pack­age and the two sym­bols |": Auf"lage.

The Java pro­gram DeLig does this job au­to­mat­i­cally for you, us­ing a lig­a­ture word list. Please note that DeLig is only as good as the lig­a­ture word list file DeLig.list it re­lies on.

This ver­sion is in­tended for Ger­man lan­guage texts only.

DeLig is par­tially based on the Perl script rm­ligs by Björn Jacke, in par­tic­u­lar the wordlist data is based on his iger­man98 dic­tio­nary.
