* README file for `recode/contrib/'. -*- outline -*- (allout) .* Hi, people! The `contrib/' directory of the `recode' distribution contains a few miscellaneous tools, ports, or such things, which have been collected here and there, a bit randomly, for your possible entertainment or use. Beware that nothing here is supported by the `recode' maintainer, you might have to contact the authors directly to get support. There is no guarantee that any file in this directory will still exist in subsequent releases. Finally, there is no guarantee either that I will accept to include contributions, unless I find them very good or very small. But I'm quite willing to give URL pointers to other tools, right here! .* Included files To the best of my knowledge, all included files are free, and already available widely by other means. I did not collect any kind legalistic papers proving that the contained material is indeed free. In case of a dispute, or at the mere request of the author, I'll quickly remove any dubious material. So, do not consider the files here as being as *safe* as the things you usually get from the Free Software Foundation. Please drop me a note about what you found to be useful, in here, to help me at deciding what should be kept and what should go away. . + utf8.el This tool helps Emacs users at inserting UTF-8 encoded ISO-10646 or Unicode characters in an Emacs buffer.
