What is PAPyRUS ?

PAPyRUS is a word processor for UNIX systems (especially for Linux), under X11/Motif.

The goal of PAPyRUS is to obtain a complet and modern word processor for document composition.

PAPyRUS has many fonctionnalities, but it is still in developpment.

PAPyRUS was my Master project when I was in the MIME department of the 'Universite de Paris 8'.

What can I do with PAPyRUS ?

PAPyRUS is has 3 modules:

  • the kernel wrote in C++
  • the TCL command interpreter
  • the GUI, wrote in C with the X11/Motif library

Some fonctionalities of PAPYRUS:

  • text insertion
  • images insertion (Xpm format)
  • use of a command language in the application
  • character attributes (bold, italic, size, font)
  • paragraph attributes (alignment, margins)
  • save formats (ASCII, PostScript, Specific PAPyRUS)
  • document print
  • syntax checker (width ispell)

What is required ?

To compile and execute 'PAPyRUS' you need the following things:

  • an Unix system (Sun OS, Solaris, IRIX, Linux) !!!
  • the X Window System
  • the Motif 2.0 library
  • the Tcl 7.6 library (at least 7.5)
  • the Xpm library
  • a C/C++ compiler like gcc
  • the syntax checker ispell (optional)

Where can I obtain 'PAPyRUS' ?

The primary site for 'PAPyRUS' are:

http://www.mime.univ-paris8.fr/~loscar/PAPyRUS or

ftp://ftp.mime.univ-paris8.fr/usr/loscar/PAPyRUS

or

ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/wp/Papyrus

How to install 'PAPyRUS' ?

Installation is very easy:

  1. Untar the archive file. This creates the 'Papyrus1.1.1' directory:
        gzip -d Papyrus1.1.1-src.tar.gz
        tar xvf Papyrus1.1.1-src.tar

        or (with the gnu version of tar):

        tar xvfz Papyrus1.1.1-src.tar.gz

2) go in the 'Papyrus1.1.1' directory

cd Papyrus1.1.1

3) Generates the dependencies :

        make depend
        make clean

4) Compile the files

make

6) Install the executable file (must be root)

make install

NOTE: You can run PAPyRUS without installing it. But you have to set the

       PAPYRUS_DIR variable to the value: .../Papyrus1.1.1/lib (fill with the path
       of the root directory of PAPyRUS).

How to run 'PAPyRUS' ?

To run the 'PAPyRUS', just type 'papyrus'.

If PAPyRUS has been installed elsewhere than in the '/usr/local/lib' directory, you have to set the PAPYRUS_DIR variable before running it.

Bugs and remarks

'PAPyRUS' was developped and tested under Linux, and X11R6. Otherwise, it's not bug-free. If you find one, send me a mail in order to eliminate it. Please send also the reason and the effects of the bug to make the correction more easily, and more quickly.

Thanks all.
