libLASi is a library written by Larry Siden that provides a C++
stream output interface for creating Postscript documents that can
contain characters from any of the scripts and symbol blocks
supported in Unicode and by Owen Taylor's Pango layout engine.
The library accomodates right-to-left scripts such as Arabic
and Hebrew as easily as left-to-right scripts. Indic and Indic-derived
Complex Text Layout (CTL) scripts, such as Devanagari, Thai, Lao, and
Tibetan are supported to the extent provided by Pango and by the
OpenType fonts installed on your system. All of this is provided
without need for any special configuration or layout calculation on
the programmer's part.
libLASi was designed for projects which require the ability to
produce Postscript independent of any one application framework.
