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!
