VIE^'T and Utilities
_______

This package contains the following executable programs:

VIET.COM: VIE^'T version 1.6 Vietnamese text editor.
VLASER.EXE: A HP-Laserjet printing module for VIE^'T.
VMORE\.EXE: A (Unix) "more"-like utility\.
LSDESIGN.COM: A laser font editing/designing program.
PRDESIGN.COM: A dot-matrix font editing/designing program.
SCDESIGN.COM: A screen font editing/designing program.

The documentation for these programs are

VIET.DOC VIE^'T 1.6 manual
VLASER.DOC VLASER manual
VMORE\.DOC VMORE manual
DESIGN.DOC Manual for SCDESIGN, PRDESIGN & LSDESIGN

The above files should be read using VIE^'T. They (as well as this
file) can be printed out on a laser printer using VLASER, or on a
dot-matrix printer using VIE^'T.

Other files in the package and the programs which use them
are:

File Description Used by

SCRFONT Screen font VIET.COM, VMORE\.EXE
SCRFONT.1,2,3 Alternate screen fonts
*.PRF Dot-matrix printer fonts VIET.COM
*.LSR: Laserjet fonts VLASER.EXE
HELP?.SCR: Help screens VIET.COM
*.PAR Environment data VIET.COM, VLASER.EXE
LAYOUT.CHR : Character assignment table, useful in
designing fonts

The following are brief descriptions of the programs. See
the appropriate DOC files for more detailed descriptions.


VIET.COM:

VIE^'T is a somewhat Wordstar-like text editor for Vietnamese\.
It runs on MS-\DOS machines, and requires CGA (or compatible, such
as EGA, VGA, etc.) graphics. Output is via dot-matrix printers
(see VLASER for laser printing). It uses micro-spacing
bit-mapped technology to produce near-letter-quality output even
on non-NLQ printers.

All VIE^'T commands are summarized on the help screen (Press
F1 inside VIE^'T to read). One major improvement for this version
is the ability for user-\defined keys (ALT F1 to set up).


VLASER.EXE:

VLASER is the laser printing portion of VIET. It allows you
to format the page and select different fonts, pitches, line
spacings, etc. Four laser fonts are supplied: COURIER,
PRESTIGE, PALATINO and CHANCERY\.

VLASER can be used to print output files of VIET or VMORE\.
Usage: vlaser [filename] (the filename is optional; if not
supplied, the previously used filename will be assumed).


VMORE\.EXE:

This is a utility like Unix' "more", but takes pseudo-
Vietnamese as input. This utility allows you to read Vietnamese
messages that have been electronically mailed to you, or posted
on a computer network. It also performs conversions between VIE^'T
files and these other data formats to allow you to electronically
mail or post files written with VIE^'T.

Executing VMORE without any parameter will display a help
message to guide you through it.


AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH VIET, VLASER & VMORE:

Having a file named TEXT.SCV which you have received as
electronic mail (e\.g, from viet-net) or downloaded from a news
group, such as soc.culture\.vietnamese (SCV)

VMORE TEXT.SCV TEXT.VT (read the file, put result in TEXT.VT)
VLASER TEXT.VT (print out a copy of TEXT.VT on the
Laserjet)
VIET TEXT.VT (edit the file for a reply, print it out on a
dot-matrix printer, or compose a new message;
e\.g., REPLY\.VT)
VLASER REPLY\.VT (print a copy of the new message on
the Laserjet)
VMORE -P REPLY\.VT REPLY\.SCV (convert reply to SCV format for
posting, use -PN if you don't want to view
the output)


LSDESIGN.COM, PRDESIGN.COM, SCDESIGN.COM:

These three utilities allow you to modify or create laser,
dot-matrix, and screen fonts, respectively\. Please read the file
DESIGN.DOC for instructions on usage\.

VLASER REPLY\.VT (print a copy of the new message on

VMORE -P REPLY\.VT REPLY\.SCV (convert reply to SCV format for
posting, use -PN if you don't want to view

LSDESIGN.COM, PRDESIGN.COM, SCDESIGN.COM:

These three utilities allow you to modify or create laser,
dot-matrix, and screen fonts, respectively\. Please read the file
DESIGN.DOC for instructions on usage\.


Documentation for this package is included in the following
files:

MANUAL.DOC Brief description of the programs and files
VIET.DOC Manual for VIET.COM
VLASER.DOC Manual for VLASER.EXE
VMORE.DOC Manual for VMORE.EXE
DESIGN.DOC Manual for SCDESIGN.COM, PRDESIGN.COM and
LSDESIGN.COM
WHATSNEW.DOC Changes from VIET version 1.5 to 1.6

These files can be read using the batch command MAN. For
example, to read the VIET document, type: MAN VIET, then use the
space key to move forward, and "b" to move back, and "q" to quit.

The following procedure allows you to print out these files
for reference. First, convert these five files to VIET format by
executing the CONVERT batch command. This converts the five .DOC
files to five .VT files.

You can then print the five VT files on a Laserjet series
or compatible printer using VLASER (see the "About VLASER" screen
inside VLASER to determine which printers will work), or on a
dot-matrix printer using VIET (warning: printing all 5 files on a
dot-matrix printer may take hours).

Example: To print MANUAL.VT on a laser printer, type

VLASER MANUAL.VT

The following settings are suggested for VLASER:

Font name: Courier
Pitch: Elite
Left edge offset: 4.5 cm
Line spacing: 4mm
Start at page: first
End at page: last
First page number: 1 (see note below)
Top margin: 2.5 cm
Bottom margin: 2.5 cm
Print page number: yes
Page-number position: 11.3 cm

Note: you may want to concatenate the documents into a
single manual by setting the "First page number" to follow the
page number of the last page of the last document. For example,
if the last page number of MANUAL.VT was 5, you may want to set
this value to 6 for VIET.VT.

To print these files on a dot-matrix printer, the
suggested values for VIET (on 8.5" x 11" fan-fold paper) is

Top margin and Bottom margin : experiment to find the right
values for your printer (Bottom margin minus Top margin
should equal 54)
Page length = 66
Page number collumn = 32
Page numbering = yes
Starting page number = see note above
Page offset = experiment and find the right value for your
printer and paper feed.
