These instructions for obtaining the SIL Encore IPA fonts have one
small but fatal mistake in them; so at the risk of repetition, here is
how to obtain the fonts by various methods:

To obtain the SIL Encore IPA fonts by World Wide Web or Gopher:
- -------------------------------------------------------------

Connect to our Web server at this URL:

 http://www.sil.org/

or connect to our Gopher server at this address:

 gopher.sil.org

and look under SIL resources for a pointer to SIL software and the
fonts.


To obtain the SIL Encore IPA fonts by FTP:
- ----------------------------------------

1. FTP to ftp.sil.org [198.213.4.1].

2. Log in as "anonymous" and give your e-mail address as the password.

3. To get the Windows version, do these commands:

 cd [.fonts.win]
 binary
 get silip12a.exe

This is a self-extracting archive.

You may also want to get KEYMAN, a keyboard redefinition program that
facilitates typing the IPA font. Do this command (in the same
subdirectory):

 get keyman.exe

4. To get the Macintosh version, do these commands (from the log-in
directory):

 cd [.fonts.mac]
 get silipa12.sea_hqx

This is a Binhex-encoded self-extracting archive. You will need a
Binhex program to decode it.


To obtain the SIL Encore IPA fonts for Windows by e-mail:
- -------------------------------------------------------

1. Create a message consisting of only this line:

SEND/MODE=BLOCK/ENCODING=UUENCODE [FTP.FONTS.WIN]SILIP12A.EXE

2. Send this message to:

 mailservsil.org

The file will arrive uuencoded. You will need a uudecoding program to
decode it.

You may also want to get KEYMAN, a keyboard redefinition program that
facilitates typing the IPA font. Use this command:

SEND/MODE=BLOCK/ENCODING=UUENCODE [FTP.FONTS.WIN]KEYMAN.EXE


To obtain the SIL Encore IPA fonts for Macintosh by e-mail:
- -------------------------------------------------------

1. Create a message consisting of only this line:

SEND [FTP.FONTS.MAC]SILIPA12.SEA_HQX

2. Send this message to:

 mailservsil.org

This is a Binhex-encoded self-extracting archive. You will need a
Binhex program to decode it.


The SIL Encore IPA fonts are also available on diskette for $5.00. Order from:

Message 2: text analysis programs

Subject: text analysis programs



The following is from Michael Barlow, in response to various queries
about text analysis (concordancing) programs:

There are a few Mac concordance programs available such as Conc and
Free Text. My Corpus Linguistics page contains information about such
programs:

http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~barlow/corpus.html

I have been working on a Windows concordancer (MonoConc for Windows),
which will be published in March --
http://www.nol.net/~athel/mono.html

There is a Mac version of MonoConc programmed using HyperTalk. I hope
to produce a C++ version one of these days, but I can email the
existing program in binhex form to anyone interested in using it.
