This is the home page of the RES encoding scheme for hieroglyphic text.

General documentation

Description of the encoding scheme

The implementation: res2image

(The implementation from the download link below is in C. This is not maintained at present. I recommend that you use the alternative implementation in Java.)




Frank Nusselder spent countless hours helping me with graphical formats and the intricacies of C and makefiles. I am indebted to Michel Mudde for intensive discussions in the early stages of developing the encoding format. I'm also grateful to many other people who contributed to this work, among whom are Pierrick Brihaye, Jaap van Dijk, Serge Rosmorduc, Paul Sciortino, Daniel Tuijnman, and Filip Vervloesem.
