This library was designed and developed by the NRSI (Non-Roman Script Initiative) within SIL International (www.sil.org) 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 graphite compiler.
The GDL preprocessor is based on fcpp http://daniel.haxx.se/projects/fcpp/ There is no documentation on that site anymore but I have found a copy of it on web.archive.org This may be found at http://web.archive.org/web/20050305100824/http://www.contactor.se/~dast/fpl-old/cpp/main.HTML
