BG5CONV(1) General Commands Manual BG5CONV(1)

bg5conv - convert a TeX document in Big 5 encoding into `preprocessed' form.

bg5conv < infile > outfile

Big 5 encoding for traditional Chinese uses the characters {, }, and \ which have special meanings in TeX documents.

After processing a LaTeX 2e document which contains Big 5 characters with bg5conv you need not care about these special characters.

This filter is part of the CJK macro package for LaTeX 2e.
