README for the rtkinenc package.

The rtkinenc package is functionally similar to the standard LaTeX
package inputenc -- both set up active characters so that input 
character outside 7-bit visible ASCII are converted to the 
corresponding LaTeX commands. The main difference lies in that 
rtkinenc allows the user to specify a fallback procedure to use 
when the text command corresponding to some input character isn't 
available. This is primarily useful for program listings and similar 
material where one doesn't want characters to disappear in the 

Names of commands in rtkinenc have been selected so that it can read 
inputenc encoding definition files, and the aim is that rtkinenc 
should be backwards compatible with inputenc. rtkinenc is not a new 
version of inputenc though, nor is it part of standard LaTeX.

For an example of how the extra features in rtkinenc might be used, 
see the tcldoc document class (in CTAN directory macros/latex/

rtki­nenc – In­put en­cod­ing with fall­back pro­ce­dures

The rtki­nenc pack­age is func­tion­ally sim­i­lar to the stan­dard pack­age in­pu­tenc: both set up ac­tive char­ac­ters so that an in­put char­ac­ter out­side the range of 7-bit vis­i­ble ASCII is coverted into one or more cor­re­spond­ing com­mands. The main dif­fer­ence lies in that rtki­nenc al­lows the user to spec­ify a fall­back pro­ce­dure to use when the text com­mand cor­re­spond­ing to some in­put char­ac­ter isn't avail­able.

Names of com­mands in rtki­nenc have been se­lected so that it can read in­pu­tenc en­cod­ing def­i­ni­tion files, and the aim is that rtki­nenc should be back­wards com­pat­i­ble with in­pu­tenc. rtki­nenc is not a new ver­sion of in­pu­tenc though, nor is it part of stan­dard .

For an ex­am­ple of how rtki­nenc is used, the user may look at the tcll­doc class.
