* This package is experimental. Several features depend on features
which are partially implemented or unimplemented in XEmacs. In
particular, the JIS X 0213 support and Big5 support currently do not
work, and may not be provided in any given copy of the package.
* This package apparently corresponds to Mule-UCS 0.84 (KOUGETSUDAI).
* QUICK START GUIDE
Install the XEmacs package in the usual place (under mule-packages).
Enable it by loading the `un-define' library. If your use of Unicode
is at all regular, it is recommended that the Mule-UCS Unicode coding
systems be initialized by including
in your init file. XEmacs does not autodetect Unicode by default.
For UTF-8, also include
(set-coding-category-system 'utf-8 'utf-8)
in your init file. UTF-8 has a very characteristic signature; false
negatives and positives should be very rare. UTF-16 is difficult and
as yet undocumented;
* IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
Mule-UCS provides its own build system in ./mucs-comp.el.
There are three subpackages provided: the Unicode coding system
(incompletely separated from Mule-UCS), the JIS X 0213 coding system,
and the Big5 coding system. Big5 and JIS X 0213 coding systems are
currently disabled. They proved the big5-comp.el and x0213-comp.el
libraries respectively to build themselves.
* Note that the directory structure for the distribution is required
for building. The relative paths can be changed, but for current
purposes they should be considered as hard-coded in mucs-comp.el.
***** It is not possible to rebuild this package in place. *****
***** Period!! *****
* DISTRIBUTION FILE LIST (CVS, self, and parent directories omitted).
This section is mostly for use by the maintainer. Files marked [*]
are part of the XEmacs packaging infrastructure. Those marked [**]
have been changed for XEmacs. The big5conv and jisx02193
subdirectories may be omitted in XEmacs distributions. Otherwise the
package is complete and all files are verbatim from upstream.
