K-IWrite version 0.1
K-IWrite is a KDE utility for writing documents, articles,
letters, etc. in Indian languages relatively easily and painlessly. It
works on the principle of what is popularly known as transliteration.
K-IWrite is capable of supporting a wide range of Indian
languages and is available for free in source form. Being a successor of
the highly successful and popular IWrite32,
it supports or will support all the great features of IWrite32, e.g. flexible
transliteration map file, smart preview, printing/mailing, reverse transliteration,
This is the first release of K-IWrite. It supports the following features:
Reverse transliteration is not yet supported and K-IWrite does
not yet understand the IND format specification currently being tested for IWrite32.
I do plan to incorporate this in near future.
- Flexible map files. Transliteration rules are not governed by me - the author but
by you - the user. You can define the behaviour of K-IWrite
to suite your needs and your style.
- Flexible fonts. You can use K-IWrite with a great many number of Indian
as well as English fonts. I do plan to support rich-edit editing in future.
- Regular document operations, e.g. opening, saving, closing, etc.
- Printing is partially supported. Things don't seem to print well in
Indian fonts. I am working on it, if you have any specific ideas or if you
think that you can help me on this, please feel free to contact me.
