Well, not so important, but : I give this program under the GNU
Licence, and I don't ask for anything... except that I'd like to know
a little what happens to my program. I'd be very glad to receive news
from you, even something short like : "I got it out of sheer
curiosity". If you use it, even a little, I'd be very glad to receive
your comments. A few demo files would also be very welcome. 


To customize the Makefiles for your site, edit the file
in the HieroTeX directory.

hi­ero­glyph – Hiero­glyph fonts and other sup­port

Hiero is a sys­tem for type­set­ting an­cient Egyp­tian hi­ero­glyphs. It con­tains a hi­ero­glyphic font, a num­ber of style files, and a helper pro­gram in C called sesh which al­lows one to type hi­ero­glyphic texts us­ing the ‘manuel de codage’, which is the cur­rent stan­dard for en­cod­ing an­cient Egyp­tian. The fonts in the base sys­tem are dis­tributed as source, but Adobe type 1 ver­sions are also pro­vided.
