This package provides for LuaLaTeX an
ArabTeX-like interface to generate Arabic
writing from an ascii
transliteration. It is particularly well-suited for complex documents
such as technical documents or critical editions where a lot of
left-to-right commands intertwine with Arabic writing. arabluatex is
able to process any ArabTeX input notation. Its output can be set in the
same modes of vocalization as ArabTeX, or in different roman
transliterations. It further allows many typographical refinements. It
will eventually interact with some other packages yet to come to produce
.tex source files, in addition to printed books,
compliant critical editions and/or lexicons that can be searched,
analyzed and correlated in various ways.
