Subject: Multilingual X11R5 binary installation package Release 3.0

Dear all,

It's our pleasure to announce that the full set of Multi-lingual X11R5 binary
packages is available at

Tomoko Inagawa-Kataoka
 Ohara Lab
 School of Science and Engineering
 Waseda University

The packages are for SUN/OS 4.1.3 and, Solaris 2.1 and later. Version
number of the packages is Release 3.0 (not beta!!!). The packages were
provided by Multi-lingual I/O and Text Manipulation Project at Waseda
University in order to keep evenness of languages and progress of
computerbility/interoperability. Principal reseacher of the project is
one of the designers of X11R5 Internationalization. The X11R5 system in
the packages can handle European Languages, Chinese, Japanese and
Korean, and of cource all different keyboards corresponding to those
languages are supported. The packages have been debugged and optimized
than original, and tested over 6 months by sites that multi-lingual is
essential and is daily job -- i.e. lots of universies and companies
tested the packages and they do need multi-lingual environment beyond
locale model. In Solaris version, all source codes were modified to use
only SVR4, thus there are no dependencies to GNU CC, BSD compatibility
libs and OpenWindow. And the pakcages have no dependency to Locale
sensitive functions in OS.

 Xserver: All keyboard types support for multi-lingaul. (see below)
 More optimized than before.
 Xwnmo can run correctly under tvtwm.
 All commands can run under tvtwm.
 New and latest commands were installed.
 PEX 5.1 support.
 libXaw.* automatically loads libXwchar.* (not necessary -lXwchar) support.

Patch level: fix-26 (no security holes)
CPU: Sparc SUN/OS 4.1.3
 Solaris 2.1 and later
CC: Native CC for SUN/OS 4.1.3
 SUNPro CC for Solaris 2.1
 (No dependencies to GNU CC, BSD compatibility libs and OpenWindow)

 ---------- Note
Categories of X11R5s with different Compile Switches:

 X11R5 can be compiled differently by specifying compile time
switches in mit/config/site.def. There are three categories of X11R5
as follows:

 1) NO Compile Switch
 locale model using of OS locale functions.
 Compiled R5 depends on OS locale functions, and is restricted by
 OS. In this case, length of wchar_t follows the OS's wchar_t.
 Users can use locales that vendor provided -- usually only C
 locale and one. Usually one local/system.
 locale model using of locale emuration functions in X11R5 with
 wchar_t defined in X11R5 itself. Compiled R5 is independent from
 OS's locale functions and OS's wchar_t. Users can use any
 locales that defined in X11R5. Users can call the X11R5's locale
 emulation functions and text manipulation functions. And users
 can add locales by their specification. Of course codeset for
 communication can be selected by users. Mixing multiple
 languages by wr_WR.ct is accepted. But dynamic locale change in
 an application after the application is invoked is not
 acceptable. locale/application.
 locale model with X11R5 functions but resettable locale ability
 Adding to 2), application can change locale dynamically any time
 after the application is invoked. This is the real multi-lingual
 X11R5 that we designed. This X11R5 permits you to leave from
 limitations of locale model.

Our packages are 3). At Waseda university, a lot of students came from
many countries. For us, category 3 is essential. As an achievement
of Multi-lingual I/O project, we will update this package and add new

Message 2: Papers Available from Rutgers

The Rutgers University Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) is
issuing a series of technical reports of linguistic, psychological,
philosophical, and computer-scientific interest. The following is
a list of currently available reports, with brief descriptions.

Prices, given in US dollars, cover reproduction costs and 4th class
postage in the continental US only. For the additional postage to
other locations, inquire at before
ordering. All orders for TR's should be addressed to

All checks and money orders should be made payable to Rutgers
The reports will be available by anonymous ftp from
at some point in the near future. Look in the directory /pub/papers/
and be sure to examine the file README for format information.

Reports of primarily linguistic interest:

TR-1. Alan Prince. In Defense of the Number i: Anatomy of a Linear
Dynamical Model of Linguistic Generalizations. $6.30.
 The Goldsmith-Larson dynamical linear network model of stress
and syllable structure is solved in closed form, and its principal
properties are determined analytically; the first section of the
report gives a qualitative summary and linguistic evaluation of the

TR-2. Alan Prince & Paul Smolensky. Optimality Theory: Constraint
Interaction in Generative Grammar. $11.00.
 A grammar is a system of ranked, violable constraints on output
representations. The constraints are universal; a grammar is given by
a ranking of the universal constraint set. Issues in syllabic, prosodic,
and segmental phonology are addressed.

TR-3. John McCarthy & Alan Prince. Prosodic Morphology I:
Constraint Interaction and Satisfaction. $9.50.
 Prosodic effects on morphology emerge under Optimality Theory
when phonological constraints are ranked above morphological
constraints. Reduplication and associated phenomena in Axininca
Campa are analyzed exhaustively from this perspective, and a
general characterization of Prosodic Morphology is developed.

TR-4. Jane Grimshaw. Minimal Projection, Heads, and Optimality.
 Complex patterns of verb placement and complementizer
distribution follow from the interaction of four very general
principles (e.g. `heads must be filled at s-structure', `functional
projections must be functionally interpreted'), ranked under
Optimality Theory.

TR-7. John McCarthy & Alan Prince. Generalized Alignment. $3.60.
 Structural relations between grammatical categories (here,
morphological and phonological) are governed by a single family of
constraints under Optimality Theory: these demand that one type of
grammatical constituent share a designated edge with some other type
of constituent. Evidence is considered from footing patterns,
infixability, epenthesis, syllabification, and prosodic

Reports of primarily psychological and philosophical interest:

TR-5. Stephen Stich & Ian Ravenscroft. What *is* Folk Psychology?
 When a variety of different interpretations of `folk
psychology' are properly distinguished, certain interpretations of
the standard arguments for eliminative materialism are undermined.

TR-6. Jacob Feldman. Perceptual Categories and World Regularities.
 TR-6 presents a formal theory of inductive categorization
construed as a computational perceptual problem; and a series of
experiments on human perceptual categorization that support the

TR-8. Zenon Pylyshyn. Some Primitive Mechanisms underlying Spatial
Attention. $2.30.
 TR-8 describes a research program investigating a theory of
preattentive visual location indexing, with 4 different lines of
psychophyical experimentation.

TR-9. Stephen Stich & Stephen Laurence. Intentionality & Naturalism.
 Although the project of `naturalizing' intentional properties
has been a central concern in recent philosophy of mind, nothing
worrisome follows if it should turn out that intentional properties
cannot be naturalized.

TR-10. Alan Leslie. Pretending and Believing: Issues in the theory
of ToMM. $2.80.
 The normal capacity to acquire a commonsense ``theory of
mind'' depends upon a specialized, domain-specific cognitive

TR-11. Stephen Stich & Shaun Nichols. Second Thoughts on
Simulation. $2.70.
 This paper distinguishes several different ways in which
people might use off-line simulation in predicting and explaining
each other's behavior, and argues that some of these strategies
probably are used, while others are not.

TR-12. Alan Leslie. A Theory of Agency. $2.70.
 Our core notions of Agency reflect three different processing
mechanisms arranged hierarchically; succeeding mechanisms interpret
Agents' behavior at succeeding levels of representation -- the
mechanical, the actional, and the cognitive -- where each level
corresponds to a different subtheory of agency.
