  15. This package provides for \href{}{Lua\LaTeX} an
  16. \href{}{Arab\TeX}-like interface to
  17. generate Arabic writing from an \textsc{ascii} transliteration. It is
  18. particularly well-suited for complex documents such as technical
  19. documents or critical editions where a lot of left-to-right commands
  20. intertwine with Arabic writing. arabluatex is able to process any
  21. Arab\TeX\ input notation. Its output can be set in the same modes of
  22. vocalization as Arab\TeX, or in different roman transliterations. It
  23. further allows many typographical refinements. It will eventually
  24. interact with some other packages yet to come to produce from
  25. \verb|.tex| source files, in addition to printed books, \texttt{TEI
  26. xml} compliant critical editions and/or lexicons that can be
  27. searched, analyzed and correlated in various ways.

  71. \label{sec:installation}
  72. \begin{enumerate}
  73. \item Run \verb+'lualatex arabluatex.ins'+ to produce the
  74. \verb+arabluatex.sty+ file;
  75. \item To finish the installation you have to move the following files
  76. into a directory where LaTeX can find them. See the FAQ on
  77. \verb|| at
  78. \url{} for more on this:
  79. \begin{itemize}
  80. \item \verb|arabluatex.sty|
  81. \item \verb|arabluatex-patch.sty|
  82. \item \verb|arabluatex.lua|
  83. \item \verb|arabluatex_voc.lua|
  84. \item \verb|arabluatex_fullvoc.lua|
  85. \item \verb|arabluatex_novoc.lua|
  86. \item \verb|arabluatex_trans.lua|
  87. \end{itemize}
  88. \item Additionally, those who use emacs with AUC\TeX\ may copy
  89. \verb|arabluatex.el| to their \verb|~/.emacs.d/auctex/auto| local
  90. directory. This will enable the appropriate hooks for ArabLua\TeX\
  91. in AUC\TeX.
