  Description     : creation of PostScript documents containing Unicode symbols

LASi is a library that provides a C++ stream output interface (with
operator << ) for creating PostScript documents that can contain
characters from any of the scripts and symbol blocks supported in
Unicode and by Pango layout engine. The library accomodates
right-to-left scripts such as Arabic and Hebrew as easily as
left-to-right scripts. Indic and Indic-derived Complex Text Layout
(CTL) scripts, such as Devanagari, Thai, Lao, and Tibetan are
supported to the extent provided by Pango and by the OpenType fonts
installed on your system. All of this is provided without need for
any special configuration or layout calculation on the programmer's

A preliminary version of the packages are available at the apt-getable
