not myself today wrote:hi all. i seek The Deathless and a Pali keyboard for my iPhone. that's all i need.
oh and this ashtray.
and this chair. that's all i need...
i've found an app called Unicode Map that will let me produce probably all the diacriticals used in Latin-alphabet Pali, but for each special letter i want to "type" i have to go into the Unicode Map app, tap the letter i want, which copies it to the clipboard, then return to the app i'm writing in and paste the letter where i want it...lather, rinse, repeat...it gets a bit tedious as you can imagine.
i've also found an app called Hinglish that provides a keyboard that produces some, but not all, of the Pali characters i'm looking for. naturally, my ideal would be an actual iPhone keyboard that includes all the Pali characters. anybody know of such an eAnimal?

It’s one that I made myself by converting the Thai files from http://www.84000.org
I haven’t proofread it, however, other than checking and correcting phonetically impossible consonant clusters and suchlike. Nor does it seem to have been proofread by the monks at Mahachulalongkorn University who originally scanned and OCR’d the hard volumes. So I’d say it’s in a similarly raw condition to the Sri Lankan digital Buddha Jayanti Tipiṭaka. At most it might come in handy if you want to do a quick and dirty check on alternative readings.
The format is plain text, Unicode encoding, Unix line breaks.

I can't open the files and renaming them by removing the ".7z.001" and opening them as a TXT file results in a text file with a large number of different characters and symbols.
