ALTLinux hyphenation library - development files

ALTLinuxhyph is a modified version of libhnj which is a high quality hyphenation and justification library based on the TeX hyphenation algorithm. The TeX hyphenation patterns could be used after a preprocessing step.

It is used in

Non-standard hyphenation

Some languages use non-standard hyphenation; `discretionary'
