Well, not so important, but : I give this program under the GNU

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.
