A new pack­age has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and should soon make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thank you again for your up­load, Jim Hef­feron St Michael's Col­lege ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: arabi Author's name: Youssef JABRI Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /lan­guage/ara­bic/arabi Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A pack­age toa add sup­port of Ara­bic and Farsi to (La)-TeX, com­pli­ant with BABEL Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor:
The Arabi pack­age pro­vides the Ara­bic script sup­port for TeX with­out the need of any ex­ter­nal pre-pro­ces­sor. The Bi-di­rec­tional ca­pa­bil­ity sup­poses that the user has a TEX en­gine that knows the four prim­i­tives \be­ginR, \endR, \be­ginL and \endL. That is the case of the TeX--XeT and e-TEX en­gines. Arabi is fully com­pli­ant with the BABEL sys­tem. This adds one of the last ma­jor mul­ti­lin­gual type­set­ting ca­pa­bil­i­ties not yet sup­ported by BABEL. It comes with about 30 GNU Ara­bic and 10 GNU Farsi good qual­ity fonts and may also use the Ara­bic fonts of other com- mer­cial man­u­fac­tur­ers. A lim­ited sup­port is al­ready pro­vided to use some widely used Ara­bic and Farsi fonts that come with such sys­tems. The pack­age is dis­tributed un­der the LaTeX Project Public Li­cense (LPPL), and has the LPPL main­te­nance sta­tus Author-main­tained. It can be used freely (in­clud­ing com­mer­cially) to pro­duce beau­ti­ful texts that mix Ara­bic, Farsi and Latin (or other type) char­ac­ters. You can sim­ply type the text you want in 8-bit what you see is what you get text in many in­put en­cod­ings (ac­tu­ally, CP 1256, ISO 8859-6 and Uni­code UTF-8 are sup­ported) It can also type­set clas­si­cal Ara­bic po­etry, and has a lim­ited, but al­most good, ca­pa­bil­ity of vo­cal­iz­ing. It is LaTeX2e and BABEL com­pli­ant! It has even an ex­per­i­men­tal mod­ule of translit­er­a­tion!
