Subject Re: How To Implement Ligature For Indian Languages In Pdf Documents?
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:11:16 GMT
Dilip,

Thanks for your offer of test data. What I need is a UTF-8 encoded text file
containing Gujarati word forms, one form on each line. If that data is
available in an unencumbered form on the Web, then let me know a link for
downloading. Otherwise, I would need you to post it as an attachment to the
current complex script bug [1], and also will need you to complete and send
an Individual Contributors License Agreement (ICLA) [2] to the ASF.

Once I have this data, I will be in a better position to add the small
amount of code needed to support the Gujarati script, with which I am
already familiar [I authored the Unicode Standard's detailed treatment of
Indic scripts.]

Regards,
Glenn
