libhyphenate: A general purpose hyphenation library

Filed under: libhyphenateThiton at 21:27

I'm proud to present you a library implementing Liangs hyphenation algorithm (yes, the one used in TeX) for C and C++. It is delivered together with hyphenation files for U.S. English, German, French and Spanish, and more hyphenation files are easy to compile from those included in TeX.

In version 1.0, the problems that arised with the improper handling of UTF-8 files in german-language texts were resolved.

    I'm going to try it soon, thanks for publishing it!
