PLease read CopyrightLong file before proceeding.

TeluguTeX enables you to typeset Telugu text using TeX/LaTex
family of software. This package mainly contains two sets of 
programs. One set is used to create symbols used in composing
Telugu text. These programs are written in METAFONT. The other
set of programs use these symbols as componants to assemble
Telugu text. These programs are written in TeX (macros). Once
you have generated the fonts for the sizes and styles that you
need you do not have to worry about the METAFONT programs( unless
the output device changes). But you will always need the TeX
programs to typeset Telugu text.

Following is a list of files in this package:

 CopyrightLong   - copyright notice. MUST BE READ
 CopyrightSources- copyright notice that appears in source files
 telugu.mf       - defines font dimensions
 telparam.mf     - defines parameters
 telbase.mf      - contains macros for commonly occuring shapes
 telmode.mf      - contains mode for the output device
 telcodes.mf     - defines codes for all the symbols in the font
 telchars1.mf    - contains program to generate vowels, consanant bases,
                   vowel modifiers, consonant conjuncts and accents
 telchars2.mf    - contains proggrams to generate consonant+vowel
                   combinations that need new symbols
 telchars3.mf    - contains programs to generate roman digits, telugu
                   digits and punctuation symbols
 telfonts.awk    - contains size/style specific parameters
 makefile        - use this to generate the font(s)
 README          - you are reading this file
 VERSION         - This is the place to look if you want to know
                   the version identification/history of changes
 document.tex    - documentation( extracted from Lakshmi Mukkavilli's
                   M.S report and modified)
 tlxlate.tex     - implements transliteration
 tlsyllable.tex  - composes a syllable
 tlteldigits.tex - defines telugu digits

Next let us worry about installing TeluguTeX:

Font contains 233 symbols. You need large METAFONT to generate
these symbols.
To typeset Telugu you need Big TeX. Typesetting Telugu is a very
CPU intensive job. 

It is assumed that you are installing TeluguTeX under UNIX(tm).
If you are installing TeluguTeX under UNIX(tm)
then you can skip rest of this paragraph.
METAFONT and TeX programs in this package are not dependent on UNIX,
but make and awk programs are needed.
If you do not have these programs then you will have to
do some work. You will have to extract various parameter files from
telfonts.awk and execute METAFONT on each parameter file. You will 
be essentially executing steps in makefile manually.
Each parameter file in telfonts.awk begins with the pattern '%fontfilename%'
and ends with a line containing just two % symbols('%%').
Some non-UNIX(tm) system limit the length of file names. On these
systems you may have to rename some of the files.

Steps in installation:

  1. define mode for the output device in telmode.mf
  2. copy tlsyllable.tex, tlxlate.tex and tlteldigits.tex to a  
     directory from where TeX can read \input files.
  3. copy following files to the directory that will contain
     the font files that you will generate.
        all .mf files
        makefile (make sure that the destination directory does not
                  contain  'makefile'.)
  4. goto the directory to which all .mf files have been copied.
  5. edit makefile
      a. change DPI to reflect the characteristics of of the
         output device.
      b. If you do not want to generate ALL fonts then define
         MYFONTS object listing the size/style combinations
         that you want. If you do not include all 12 size
         fonts then you can not print the documentation. 
         Please read comments at the top of 'makefile'.
         Towards the end of this file we have included a list
         giving approximate sizes of various font(pk) files.
         You may want to look at that to get an idea about the
         storage requirement.
  6. If you have not decided to generate ALL fonts then
     edit tlsyllable.tex to comment out those font definitions
     that invoke the font(s) that you have chosen to omit.
     You can do this by inserting a '%' sign in column one.
  7. Enter 'make all' or 'make myfonts' depending on what you
     decided in step 5.b .
     'make all' on SUN SPARCstation IPC takes about an hour.
  8. as a result of 'make ..' tloffsets.tex must have been 
     created. copy this file to the same directory as tlsyllable.tex.
  9. print TeluguTex.tex  (enter latex TeluguTeX)
     look at the examples.                  

  A note from the authors:

    we hope you will find this package useful for typesetting
    Telugu. TeluguTeX was developed by us when we were at
    Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, USA.
    Please direct your criticism/comments about TeluguTeX to
    email:      lzk60@css.amdahl.com
    snailmail:  915 Almaden Avenue
                Sunnyvale, CA  94086  USA
    Amount of time we can spend on TeluguTeX is fairly limited,
    so please do not expect a prompt response.
    If you have questions about METAFONT, TeX, LaTeX, drivers etc.
    you should turn elsewhere. We assume that you know how to
    generate fonts using METAFONT, how to use TeX/LaTeX and
    how to produce output on whatever device you may have. 

              Happy TeluguTeXing,

                             Lakshmankumar Mukkavilli
