Browse and export as text any ancient Greek
literature that is stored in the database using the TLG format. Use requires the included
SuperGreek bitmap font (or LaserGreek® or LaserGreek
II TrueType or Type 1 fonts available separately), and access to TLG data such as the
TLG CDROM Disk E or online access to TLG files at major universities. Thesaurus Linguae
Graecae of U.C. Irvine is a 105 million word data base of Greek literature from
Homer (8 c. B.C.) to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453 and beyond. It includes all the major Classics, Church Fathers, Philo, and Josephus. The TLG
Engine will convert any part of this data base into SuperGreek ASCII code conveniently
formatted for reading. It also includes a program to convert mainframe tape texts into
SuperGreek ASCII format, the text editing software Edit, and a transfer window to
Microsoft Word etc. You may specify where to begin and end conversion. Includes 12 point
SuperGreek font with automatic overstriking for all accents and diacritics. The Browser
portion of the TLG Engine permits you to browse through the TLG files seeing the texts in
fully accented SuperGreek and designate which portions of which works you wish to export
in SuperGreek format. Includes SuperGreek bitmap font, Users Manual.
The TLG Engine has two primary functions, browsing TLG
data in Greek and exporting TLG data converted for display in Greek into a
word processor or text editor. The TLG Engine is not a searching tool.
