Russify MS DOS
- Fonts and Keyboard Switchers
The best driver I know for MS DOS is
Download, unzip, and run it and you get
ALT cyrillic fonts and JCUKENG cyrillic keyboard.
Switching: LeftShift-RightShift swaps LAT-RUS keyboard status,
Ctrl-LeftShift-RightShift turns cyrillic fonts OFF and ON.
To get help, type "rk ?".
My favorite is "rk /l:qwerty.rk /g:aclr"
that give me cyrillic YaWERTbI keyboard.
by Vadim Kurland is another good driver.
is better than RK -- or this is what its author Artem Podstrehny claims.
Converts to/from ASCII, K8, KOI8, EBCDIC, DKOI, VAX, UCODE, INEUM.
Apparently, this is realtively old program with lots of fancy encodings.
It also can add/delete CR, ^Z, TABs, null bytes.
Converts to/from CP 1251, KOI-8, KOI-7, ALT.
It also can "kovertirovat' russkij tekst v anglijskie bukvy",
that is, it converts to/from Volapyuk/Translit.
To do most conversion you need to run the program twice,
once for From, and once for To part of conversions.
That makes it not very user friendly.
is a shareware conversion program for
converting byte oriented word processor files, such as KOI-8, CP
1251,CP 866, LEXICON, etc., to WordPerfect 5.X format.
This is Convert package plus Cyrillic file viewer,
that converts only to view file.
Cyrillic lovers: Telemate can translate the
character flow to/from your terminal from one encoding (say, KOI8-R) to
another (say, ALT), so that you can read on-line KOI8-R stuff with the
ALT driver that you already have.
Telemate is a shareware from White River Software.
