Development files for SILGraphite

SILGraphite is a system that can be used to create and use "smart fonts" capable of displaying writing systems with various complex behaviors, such as: contextual shaping, ligatures, reordering, split glyphs, bidirectionality, stacking diacritics and complex positioning.

This library was designed and developed by the NRSI (Non-Roman Script Initiative) within SIL International ( to act as a complement to other smart font rendering technologies with limited practical local extensability. Its purpose is to help meet the needs of a very large number of "minority language" communities for local extensibility of complex script behaviors.

The behavior of the SILGraphite rendering engine for a given writing system is specified through extra tables added to a TrueType font. These tables are generated by compiling a GDL (Graphite Description Language) source file into a font using grcompiler.

This package contains the headers and development libraries.

Graphite is a smart font system consists of an engine, and optionally 
some common font and rendering system support code, which transforms a
Graphite enables font, unicode string and font formatting information 
(features, size, etc.) into a set of positioned glyphs.
In reality, Graphite does more than this, as it can handle cursor 
tracking, mouse interaction, string selection and o
