arablu­a­tex – An Arab-like in­ter­face for Lua

This pack­age pro­vides for Lua an Arab-like in­ter­face to gen­er­ate Ara­bic writ­ing from an ascii translit­er­a­tion. It is par­tic­u­larly well-suited for com­plex doc­u­ments such as tech­ni­cal doc­u­ments or crit­i­cal edi­tions where a lot of left-to-right com­mands in­ter­twine with Ara­bic writ­ing. arablu­a­tex is able to pro­cess any Arab┬áin­put no­ta­tion. Its out­put can be set in the same modes of vo­cal­iza­tion as Arab, or in dif­fer­ent ro­man translit­er­a­tions. It fur­ther al­lows many ty­po­graph­i­cal re­fine­ments. It will even­tu­ally in­ter­act with some other pack­ages yet to come to pro­duce from .tex source files, in ad­di­tion to printed books, TEI xml com­pli­ant crit­i­cal edi­tions and/or lex­i­cons that can be searched, an­a­lyzed and cor­re­lated in var­i­ous ways.
