EBONG VER 1.0 (Free : Public Domain software) ============= [Intro] EBONG is a preprocessor that writes bangtex files from a file in "Rapid Roman Bangla" format. bangtex, developed by Palas Baran PAl is the LaTeX way of generating crisp bengali text (Read Publication Quality PDF) from a tex source. EBONG, written by Shibaji Banerjee (hopefullY) makes the task easier (It is more linear and easier to remember, even after a really long break) [How it works]: The comamnd ebong.py xyz.b Will produce xyz.tex. This xyz.tex file can be texified normally, if you already have the bangtex package in your TeX setup. If you do not already have it, you may obtain it from http://tnp.saha.ernet.in/~pbpal/bangtex/bangtex.html To preprocess the userguide, use ebong.py eb.b in ebong/doc. Alternately you can just read the PS / PDF files eb.ps / eb.pdf [Usage Notes] In MS you can just use ebong eb.b In *nix you can rename the file ebong.py to ebong and do a chmod +x ebong to achive the same effect. [Files] ebong.py : The application README.txt : Read this first doc\eb.pdf : Userguide doc\eb.ps : ditto doc\src\eb.b : EBONG Source of the userguide doc\src\eb_tex.tex : LaTeX Source of the userguide, converted using EBONG [REQUIREMENTS] Platform : Any platform that can make LaTeX and Python work. A working TeX setup like MikTeX or TeTeX bangtex python > 2.3 (lesser will probably do) [Author] Shibaji Banerjee (email@example.com) Physics Dept. St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, India
