I am looking for open source tool (C / C++ / Perl or Java) to convert
between (UTF-8/UTF-16 or ISCII) and differnt Indict font encoding.
Please let me know if you know anything available.
Convert from A to / from B where
font encoding of Nadunia font
font encoding of Shusha font
font encoding of DV-Suresh font
font encoding of DV-Yogesh font
font encoding of Mangal font (that is just OpenType, is it ?)
Also conversion between
UTF-16 and ISCII
If there are no CODE available, information (mapping table, algorithm,
documentation) are also helpful.
Below is the information I already know. If you know anything more than
that, please let me know. Or if you know more detail about those, please
also let me know:
1. I know Eric Mader at IBM is working on a layout engine which he
reverse enginieer some of the Indic font encoding.
2. There are some very limited information about INSFOC font from page
76-77 at http://tdil.mit.gov.in/tdiljan2002.pdf
3. Pango probably have some table to handle these fonts. Sun help us
(mozilla) to put a small part of pango code into mozilla to handle
The whole pango source at
They have some shapping engine for indic fonts. But I am not sure that
will to revers mapping from font code back to iscii
4. t http://tdil.mit.gov.in/download/menu.htm#INDIX you may have some
open soruce code there deal with the conversion
5. about Nadunia
Mark Leisher. (/email@example.com/
seems pretty knowledgable about this issue.
6. Mangal- Mangal is just a OpenType font, right? should the page
encoded in UTF-8 ?
