Full description Xlit converts text from one writing systemXlit converts text from one writing system into another. It allows the user to define a transliteration simply by typing the input strings in one window and the strings to which they are to be mapped in another. Xlit can also use external programs such as sed and iconv to perform the transliteration and can load plugins written in Tcl. It can be run without the GUI. Xlit also provides some advanced facilities not found in typical transliteration and encoding conversion programs. It is often necessary to restrict transliteration to particular parts of the text. xlit understands a variety of delimiters and if so instructed will transliterate only the regions enclosed by the specified delimiters or only their complements. It can also convert one type of delimiter to another. convert one type of delimiter to another.
