Thanks are due to Lars Martin Fosse for adding another text to our swelling
archive of machine-readable Sanskrit texts.  Lars has presented selections
from the Dasakumaracarita of Dandin (chs. 3, 5, 6).

The file is available as dandin-dasakumaracarita.zip from

I append some notes on the file, from Lars's readme.

Many thanks, Lars,

Several programs have been utilized in the encoding of the

version) as well as TUSTEP, the Tuebingen System of
Text--Processing Programs ("T!binger System von

the appropriate filters (TUSTEP programs written for this
purpose), you can get a printout with proper romanized
Sanskrit characters. The text can easily be converted to
other formats.
