GreG Character Set

This section includes a copy of the character set and a commented procedure to generate it. It is useful to give the correspondence between the keyboard and special letters in the GREGs character set.

In the roman alphabet, all keyboard keys will give the corresponding ASCII characters with only 4 exceptions :

     - The counter quote ` will give the double quote "
     - The circumflex accent ^ will give the degree sign
     - The double quote cannot be used because of SIC character handling
     - The backslash \ cannot be used because of GreG character handling

The Script character set has an exact correspondance for all letters and figures, and mathematical symbols corresponding to special characters.

The Greek character set has a rather convenient correspondance for all letters (this is not the alphabetic order which is highly non mnemotechnic). Planets symbols correspond to the figures (0 Sun, 1 Mercury and so on). Other astronomical symbols correspond to the special characters.

The procedure FONT.GREG (with the satellite procedure F.GREG) generates the three GREG alphabets in simplex and double quality and produce eight metacode files named FONT1.VEC, ..., FONT8.VEC. These files are stored in the directory GAG_DEMO:. You can plot them on paper using any of the metacode translators available on your site (HPXY, LWXY, PLXY, ...) or just invoke the ZOOM utility to have a glance at them on an interactive screen.

Satellite procedure F.GREG to generate the GREG fonts
This procedure F.GREG is called by the FONT.GREG procedure to generate the three alphabets in Simplex and Duplex quality :
!
! Draws a character in all GreG fonts and quality
! Parameter &1          Y position of character
! Parameter &2          Character to be drawn
!
DRAW TEXT  3 &1 "\\1&2"        ! Roman font, Simplex quality
DRAW TEXT  6 &1 "\\1\\G&2"     ! Greek font, Simplex quality
DRAW TEXT  9 &1 "\\1\\S&2"     ! Script font, Simplex quality
DRAW TEXT 13 &1 "\\2&2"        ! Roman font, Duplex quality
DRAW TEXT 16 &1 "\\2\\G&2"     ! Greek font, Duplex quality
DRAW TEXT 19 &1 "\\2\\S&2"     ! Script font, Duplex quality
