System Requirements

Operating System: Linux, OS Independent
Precompiled OTF fonts work with recent versions of all currently-popular word processing and typesetting systems - including those used by Linux, MacOS, and Windows.

Building the fonts from source requires a Linux or Linux-like command-line environment, Perl, GNU Make, a C compiler, Metapost (included in most TeX distributions), and FontForge (the latest development version should not require local patching). Other resources recommended for build, or required for optional features, include XeLaTeX, Expect, KANJIDIC2, a Prolog interpreter, and a multi-CPU computer.

IDSgrep requires a C compiler, Perl, and (not strictly required but strongly recommended) the KanjiVG database, a Tsukurimashou build environment, or both. Recompiling the IDSgrep PDF documentation requires XeLaTeX and the Tsukurimashou Mincho font, which is included in the precompiled package.

Documentation is primarily in English.
