Russian fonts in alternative encoding. The alternative encoding is de-facto standard on MS-DOS PC computers in Russia. In this encoding first half of code table (0-127) coincides with standard ASCII and cyrillic characters are located in second part of the table (128-255). Usually some simple screen and keyboard driver is used in order to type cyrillic characters. This directory contains: readme - this file readme.ori - original readme by A.Harin cmcyralt.tex - original readme by A.Harin in Russian mf.zip - METAFONT sources *.mf of cmcyr fonts by A.Samarin and N.Glonti with modifications by A.Harin vf.zip - Virtual fonts *.vf by A.Harin. This composite fonts reproduce alternative encoding by mapping first half of ASCII table to standard TeX's Computer Modern font and second part to cmcyr fonts in alternative encoding. vpl.zip - readable analog of *.vf files tfm.zip - Font Metric files emtex.zip - Some useful files which can help to set up Russian fonts with emTeX The LaTeX styles which can be used with these fonts are in CTAN: /macros/latex209/contrib/cmcyralt for LaTeX NFSS1 /macros/latex/contrib/other/cmcyralt for LaTeX 2e In order to use this fonts and styles you will need TeX which understand 8-bit input, and drivers which understand virtual fonts. The best choice for MS-DOS PC is emTeX and its dvidrv drivers (/systems/msdos/emtex directory on CTAN). Uploaded by Vadim V.
