This file contains supplemental information on additions or
changes since this ftp directory was originally created.
May 15 1992: the file panini.zip has been added; panini has
the file sutrapat.csx, with the asthadhyayi in
the Classical Sanskrit extended character set.
This is a modified form of the text as made available
on the Indology listserver at liverpool.ac.uk
May 15 1992: for those with PCs, the files wnrir.ega, wnrir.vga,
wnrirega.com, and wnrirvga.com may be of interest.
[These must be transferred in binary mode]. The files
wnrir.ega and wnrir.vga are screen fonts for EGA and VGA
respectively (the VGA font is also the right size for a
Hercules plus). Those with screen font downloading
utilities may use these fonts to view Sanskrit material
encoded with CS/CSX encoding --such as sutrapat.csx above.
The files wnrirega.com and wnrirvga.com are small program
files which load the video controller with the screen fonts;
these programs *do not* stay memory resident. Anything
which resets the video controller (e.g. the `mode' command,
or most graphics programs) will evict the wnrir font. Some
cards have been marketed as having `VGA graphics' but do not
support VGA fonts; if you have such a card you can likely use
the wnrirega.com program.
None of these are useful for plain Hercules or clone `mono-
graphics' cards, or for CGA cards (or for that matter causing
rain to fall or cooking the perfect ras malai).
15 May 1992: the file bddhcrtm.zip has been added; this contains the TEI
encoded text of the buddhacarita prepared by Peter Schreiner
retranscribed in the CS/CSX encoding.
