Utilities

Below are some utilities I wrote some years ago now primarily for my own use, but I am making available here in case they might be of use to others.
 




RoboGreek is a small Windows utility that does not need any installation. Just double-click and the programme starts to monitor the keyboard. Click on the small icon in the icon-tray, or press Alt-0 (zero), and you will start typing UniCode Greek in any Unicode-supporting Windows programme. The keyboard is the same as the WinGreek keyboard, and accents and breathings can be added (details can be found in the programme itself). Press Alt-0 again to turn it off. This means that not only can you type Unicode Greek in Word, but you can send emails with polytonic Greek, or (something I find very useful), type Unicode Greek into Diogenes.

July 2015 - Version 1.01 fixes a long-standing bug with rho/breathings, and iota subscript/circumflex

August 2018 - Version 1.2 fixes a bug that prevented capital letters from being accented

RoboGreek Standard works on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. The program monitors the keyboard at low level, so some anti-virus programmes may get a bit anxious, but there is no virus!

 


 



Stuck with a meaningless abbreviation? Just double-click AP Expander and all will be revealed. AP Expander will give you the full journal title from any Annee Philologique abbreviation, and can also perform the reverse function, and give you the abbreviation for any journal title. Again, no installation required, just download and run.
