These are the tools I developed to work more efficiently with Ebisédian. Although they will probably only be useful to me, a lot of the design and motivation behind them can probably help other conlangers in managing their own projects. Hence, I have decided to publish them.
- A POSIX-compliant C compiler (which will probably also require a POSIX-compliant operating system, unless you use substitutes like Cygwin). Although most of the code is portable, I just couldn't be bothered make every last bit portable since I will probably be the only user.
- Perl 5.005 or above.
- [Optional] Cons
- [Optional] LaTeX
Cons is optional, it is highly recommended
since otherwise you may not be able to figure out how to compile any of the
programs. (Many source files are auto-generated from templates using Perl
scripts, which must be run in a particular order on specific files.)
This package includes some actual source files for the Ebisédian lexicon, as well as the infamous Ebisédian relay entry in the CONLANG relay of 2000 (which drove home the point that there were no such things as stars in the Ferochromon, thereby causing much grief and turmoil in the relay thereafter).
