INTRODUCTION

This program is a small text editor, what makes it special is it helps to learn the keyboard, since it writes as it was Israeli. It may help a bit to learn the language. Includes games to practice, and also a Dictionary where you can search for words in HEBREW, SPANISH AND ENGLISH.
It's dictionary has every word that appears in the website. In it had been generated from the databank of the dictionary of this program.
If you want to use the Dictionary: Only press [F10] to go the Menu then select DICTIONARY with [Arrow Up], [Arrow Dn], [End], or number [9] since it will be the ninth option in the menu
[F2] Will search words in Hebrew, you can help yourself with the Keys that appear in the lower row of the screen, is equal to [CLICK] on them or write them.
[F3] Will search words in Spanish
[F4] Will search words in English
Since is possible to load documents from disk, the program will search a word from the text by pressing [Ctrl] + [Enter] with cursor on it, or the right button of the mouse with the mouse arrow in that word.
In some searches may be useful to select a segment of a word, do it with the block selection: [F5] and [F6] or [Shift]+,[Left Arrow],[Rifht Arrow], or the mouse.
For instance this happens in Hebrew with Ha wich is the article The, or Vav that generally means AND or But; Caf which may mean alike; Bet which may mean in or with, also in the declination of verbs, once you understand this you will be able to separate a VERBAL ROOT, to search for it in a dictionary. In Spanish you may discard de gender or number sensitive ending of nouns. In English you may discard de number sensitive ending of nouns.

ENCODINGS AND CHARSETS

Encoding or Codification is the way in which a file is recorded. Character Set is the set of characters: letters or symbols that represent each byte or octet of the file.
Short History The Character Sets In the 1980 s and a little before in America was used a standard charset that represented with a letter or symbol each one of the 256 values that an 8 digit binary number can take.
This is the Standard ANSI by the American National Standard Institute, and includes the 26 letters of the English alphabet capitals and lowercase, math symbols, box drawing characters some vowels with accents, ñ and even the Greek alphabet. Yes 256 characters were enough for all this and more...
Nevertheless in Europe, for example Holland and other countries whose languages include different accents in almost all or all the vowels, in order to display in screen the documents correctly another Set of Characters was needed, one that would include the accentuated or special letters that are used in those languages.
Therefore, some characters that in America were box drawing simple and double borders were accentuated vowels in Europe.
That way we used in America a different Character Set than they used in Europe.
Now this Charset is still used, the one used in United States is ANSI 437 also called OEM, the one used in Europe is ANSI 850 also called International.
ENCODINGS Could it be possible to stablish a different Character Set for each continent or country, but Internet sites are seen and made worldwide. Some languages have more than 256 lettters, like Chinese.  We need more than 256 characters, no doubt.

Charsets and Encodings in this program This program uses partly the UTF-8 Encoding for: Hispanic accentuation, ñ, border characters, and Hebrew letters. Here you see the README.TXT that is a UTF-8 document.
In order to see the special options: LOAD FROM ENCODING and SAVE TO ENCODING in the Menu press [Shift] + [F10] or have pressed [Shift] while choosing [F10] with the Mouse. Anyway the program sill ask you in UTF-8 documents about including or not the UTF-8 signature and arranging the Hebrew text as visual or logic.
Once a encoding is selected with [Enter] it will display a preview of the first page. If the correct Encoding was selected, the page will be display correctly. Then exit with [Esc] or select the first option: ENCODING CODIFICACION. Otherwise may try another Encoding with [Enter] again.
When you select UTF-8 the program will ask details like include or Not the UTF-8 signature and Arrange the saved text as Visual o Logic. This is a scheme of a file content for every case:

Visual without signature:                 Hello MOLASH
Visual with signature:                    [Signature] Hello MOLASH
Logic or Bidirectional with signature:    Hello SHALOM
Logic or Bidirectional without signature: [Signature] Hello SHALOM
      

This is done in a submenu in the UTF-8 option of the Encodings Menu. The ISO 8859-8 Option has a two options submenu for Visual or Implicit Bidirectional.


If You load a document and see Hebrew text inverted then the document was saved with other BIDIrectionality, if you see an extrange character as the first character, there is a UTF-8 signature. However the program verifies this signature and also the text direction by searching Hebrew ending letters at the left or right of Visual or Logic respectively arrangements.
You can see the document information by pressing [Shift] + [F9] from the edit window.


A DOCUMENT IS SAVED IN THE SAME ENCODING IT WAS LOADED. These menus are given for you to choose when you want to change them yourself.
These are all the available encodings and options.  I regret to clutter with irrelevant information.  Sorry.


The Encodings Menu is different, in order to have space behind it to display the preview.
The number beside a letter refers to the representing byte. For instance the Charset ISO 8859-8 the character hexadecimal $E0 or decimal 224 represents the Aleph letter so on until the hexadecimal $FA or decimal 250 which represents the TAV letter. This is the default encoding.
BIDIRECTIONALITY Now let's pretend a text document is a string of characters like the beads in a thread.
We know there is one beginning and the next one follows but laying them out in a rectangular arrangement choosing to go: Left to Right or Right to Left is customary.
BIDIRECTIONALITY is the ability of the computer to arrange this letters from Right to Left or Left to Right when appropriate.
We call an arrangement VISUAL when there is no this ability and we put the beads in the thread inverted when should go from Right to Left in order to see them orderly despite the computer will always display them from Left to Right in the Screen.
We call an arrangement LOGIC when the computer is smart and sets up the beads on a thread or characters in a file from Left to Right when English letters and from Right to Left when those are Hebrew Letters while storing them in memory and disk in the beginning to end correct order too.
ENCODINGS DESCRIPTIONS

ISO 8859-8: It somehow alike code page 437 or OEM, but includes Hebrew, Aleph is in $E0 or 224, and Tav in $FA or 250. Due to Hebrew is written from Right to Left it records in disk the last letters first and the first letters last so seen ok in each row. This is without Bi-directional algorithm, and it is called Visual.
ISO 8859-8-i: The same as the previous one, but the -i means Implicit bidireccionality. Every Hebrew section in every row is recorded in disk from begin to end too, but displays in screen correctly. This is called Logical.
PC 7 Bit ASCII: Called also the Old Code. Aleph this in the ', $60 Bet in a, $61 Gimel in b. $62.. It represents the Hebrew letters instead of the English lower-case letters. It is called also Standard 960.
PC 8 Bit ASCII IBM PC: Old codification. Also called PC Code DOS Cp862 Aleph is in $80 or decimal 128. Hebrew enabled CGA Hercules monitors used this encoding.
IBM EBCDIC: Is a property Code Page of International Business Machines Corp. Acronym of: Extended Binary Code Decimal Interchange Code. Has many CCSID Character Code Set Identification Number. er. In CCSID037 the Hebrew alphabet isn't continuous: Aleph is Decimal 41 to Tet 49, Yud is 51 to Samech 59, Ayin is 62 to Shin 69. And Tav is 71. It isn't used anymore.
Keyboard Replace: This is not a encoding, but there are some Hebrew Fonts that have the Hebrew Letters instead of Western Letters as they are in the keyboard. It's use is not recommended. Unless to import from it.
UTF-16 UCS-2: Is a norm property of UNICODE. It represents each character with a 16 Bits or 2 Bytes Integer. Being able to represent more than 65000 different characters that include easily almost all the known alphabets. Aleph is $05D0, decimal 1488. Tav is $05EA, decimal 1514. It has two variants: Little Endian and Big Endian. This in reference to the order in which a number of 16 Bits or 2 Bytes is recorded in Disk, if the byte more significant first or later. Includes a signature at the beginning of file: $FE $FF or $FF $FE.
UTF-8 With/Without Signature/ Bidi: It represents correctly the international characters. It can include a signature at the beginning of the file $EF $BB $BF that makes it easy to differentiate. May include the signature or not, can be Bidirectional or not. See Encodings.
Binary Binary: It is not a encoding, displays a file byte by byte only.

GAMES

Here you can transliterate, coincide and spell. You can also test your knowledge.  Notice this games make no sound whatsoever your computer isn't broken.

COINCIDING LETTERS


Coinciding Letters: Test your knowledge in Transliteration: With mouse or keyboard: [Left Arrow], [Right Arrow], [Home] or [End] select from the bottom an English letter that is the transliteration of a Hebrew letter on the top, then press [Enter] or [Space], if it is correct, the Hebrew letter will move downwards while leaves the list, while the English letter will move upwards, unless it transliterates several Hebrew letters, in which case will leave the list when you have them coincided all.
To learn more letters increase the DIFFICULTY in the Game Configuration Menu. Between 6 and 29 You will learn all the letters, up to 51 the vowels, until 70 will learn even the letters with daguesh.
Note the transliteration here is not scientific, but an approximation to the pronunciation. If you are used to a different transliteration simply define it in the Dictionary Menu in the DEFINE TRANSLITERACION option, or may use the Spanish transliteration. Exit with [Esc], then see your Score.

TRANSLITERATE


Transliterating When you have learnt the equivalent letters, you will be able to transliterate words. The lower row has for you to choose all the English letters that are used for transliterate, the initially empty cells of the middle are to be filled with the transliteration.
"Going Up" or pressing [Up Arrow] will note that the brilliant frame is in these empty cells and the Hebrew word, move through with: [Left Arrow], [Right Arrow], [Home] or [End] "Going Down" or pressing [Down Arrow] will move toward the lower row in which you select the English letter that transliterates to each Hebrew letter or vowel.
You can move faster by pressing [Shift] + [Left Arrow] / [Right Arrow]. When you finish will make you transliterate another. As it is indicated in the Help, will Transliterate or will Spell all the visible words in the list in the Dictionary, they are 11. You may exit anytime pressing [Esc], your Score will be shown.

COINCIDING WORDS


Coinciding Words Is almost the same as Coinciding Letters. The same keys are used. But it may use Hebrew, Spanish, and English. To select a certain kind of words define a selection in the Dictionary or in the Game Configuration Menu selecting the option Define Selection. Press [Esc] to exit.

COINCIDING MANY WORDS


Coinciding Many In order to see more words the lists are displayed vertical. Move through Left, Right, Up and Down, the double box marks where the cursor is. When the Word in the Right is the translation of the word at the Left press [Enter] or [Space]. Many times is needed to see the points=niqudot to distinguish some words from others.

SPELLING


Spelling Is the most difficult one of the games. You should know to write accurately. The keyboard use is the same as in Transliteration.

SCORE


Score Shows the last score that was obtained. The number of correct and wrong answers, the time and finally it compares them in a scale.
Stare only In this option you will see the words selected as have been Defined in Selection and number of Difficulty: Doing the figures that are chosen in the Menu. If the quantity of words selected was smaller to the Difficulty or Number of Coincidences, then will see only the words that comply the selection conditions. If you mark [*] in the option clock, will see it as background. Marking in the clock 3 times, will see only the clock.
Configuration In this option of the Games menu: Word selection is defined, the languages are chosen, difficulty or number of coincidences, colors, background movement, and background.
Selection gets into a menu like in the Dictionary. Here there is not a Language Selection for the sorting of the Dictionary, only the Definition of selection. In order to do so mark: Selection [*].
Selection [*] If you check [*] Will Define: Class, Gender, Number, and if the class is pronoun or verbal construction: Person and Time of the words that will coincide, or select in the game. The maximum number is the Difficulty, if the words that accomplish all the conditions were a smaller number to the Difficulty, will see or will coincide only the words that complied the conditions.
Languages Here are chosen the languages that appear Up and Down or to the Right and Left in Coinciding Words and Coinciding many words.
Difficulty Write here the difficulty, that is the maximum number of coincidences that should do, if the words that comply the selection are a smaller number to the difficulty, only should do the quantity of words. When it is about Coinciding letters to practice or to learn the Transliteration: The definite Difficulty until 29 will do all the letters, Until 51 the vowels also, and even 70 the letters with daquesh also. In order to write 100 press [Left Arrow] first to have room for it.
Select Colors Here you may choose colors: The color of the background is the general background, the color of the line will be used to draw the background. If you choose for the Letter a color with black background, it will be Transparent. Is equal in the Dictionary.
Movement Write here two numbers between -4 and + 4 for the vertical and horizontal increment of the movement of the background.
Background The Background can be None, Cuadrillé, Grillage or Rainbow. The Grillage shows a visual effect that seems to move through in the middle of a grillage of dark and light line color. Rainbow shows seven different colors. IF THE BACKGROUND IS ANNOYING SELECT IT AGAIN IN THE MENU, IT WILL BE GONE!

Please don't forget you are learning a different language the fact that some sounds in your native language are a little alike those of this new one does not mean you don't have to effort to learn the very right way to make absolutely new sounds in order to be understood and not give another people a hard time trying to understand you.

DICTIONARY

The reason of being of this program: Besides practicing typing in an Israeli keyboard we can search some words. For example, having loaded from disk the document README.TXT. Move the cursor a little down to the song Jerusalem of Gold, of Naomi Shemer there move through the cursor to the second row and the second word, then press [Ctrl] + [Enter] it will call the Dictionary and search the word. Also you can go to the dictionary selecting the last option of the Menu, but does not search the word at the cursor.


Being in the dictionary the function keys have different effect, although this is announced in the upper help which by default is function keys, now we explain:
[F1] Help
[F2] Search word in Hebrew
[F3] Search word in Spanish
[F4] Search word in English
[F5] Shows or modifies the classification of the word
[F6] Shows or modifies the gender of the word in Hebrew
[F7] Shows or modifies the number of the word in Hebrew
[F8] Shows or modifies the person of the word in Hebrew, Only if this classified as a pronoun or verbal construction, BINYAN
[F9] Shows or modifies the time of the word in Hebrew, Only if this classified as a verbal construction, BINYAN
[F10] The dictionary menu.
[Shift] + [F2] Edit the word in Hebrew
[Shift] + [F3] Edit the word in Spanish
[Shift] + [F4] Edit the word in English
[Del] It deletes the current record of the databank clearing all its fields. The next time to be sorted, will be eliminated. Note: an empty Hebrew field indicates an empty record even if English and Spanish have content, the record is considered deleted and will be eliminated when sorting.
MOVING The [Up Arrow] and [Down Arrow] keys let you go to the previous and next records, if the last word was found in Hebrew the Dictionary will be seen sorted by Hebrew, by pressing them you will see similar words in Hebrew. If the last word was found in English the Dictionary will display sorted by English. You may press [Tab] in order to have a more general view. Press [Tab] again in order to see big letters with points and transliteration.


Here is clear that the dictionary is sorted by Hebrew because the double box is in the Hebrew Language, and we can see more words.
SEARCHING: we Repeat that:
[F2] Search word in Hebrew
[F3] Search word in Spanish
[F4] Search word in English
You can modify that word maybe taking off the plural, etc.; this is especially useful in Hebrew for remove pronouns, prepositions, or agglutinated suffixes, in order to leave the verbal root only.
EDITING: To add a new record Press [Ctrl] + [End].
[Shift] + [F2] Edit the word in Hebrew, when finished press [Enter]
[Shift] + [F3] Edit the word in Spanish, when finished press [Enter]
[Shift] + [F4] Edit the word in English, when finished press [Enter]
Once Hebrew, Spanish, or English, have been modified and Classification hit [Enter] to save the modification to disk, you'll see RECORDED in screen.
DEFINE TRANSLTERATION: Note the transliteration here is not scientific, but an approximation to the pronunciation. If you are accustomed to use a different one, simply define it in the Dictionary Menu in this option, or just select the Spanish Transliteration option.

Selecting the asterisk of SELECCION, we will set a filter for the words that want to see. Notice the databank is sorted by Class, and Hebrew.


This makes easier to learn the language. Selecting the asterisk REVIEW does not display the translation but until we press some key, in Big Letter Mode, not Table Mode.  So you can try to remember before seen it.
SORT INDEXES: Press [Ctrl] + [F10] this is necessary if several words to the Dictionary were added, or you believe that already added all the necessary, and want to order the indexes. If the database has been sorted, the program will sort also the indexes of languages because otherwise indexes would aim all to incorrect registrations. This menu shows the Memory.


The dictionary displays the verbal roots of Hebrew in the form of Male Singular Past Third person of the verb, while in English is the infinitive of the verb. This is if Hebrew says DAVAR = Spoke in English says SPEAK, To = Ledaber. The To is after the verb in order to allow alphabetical search.

Please don't forget you are learning a different language the fact that some sounds in your native language are a little alike those of this new one does not mean you don't have to effort to learn the very right way to make absolutely new sounds in order to be understood and not give another people a hard time trying to understand you.

Irrelevant: WHY DOES THIS PROGRAM EXIST?

VISION: The absence or scarcity of free media in Spanish for learning Hebrew hinders the preservation of Jewish culture outside Israel.
MISSION: To provide a free tool to everyone interested with access to the internet or a computer to help preserve and disseminate knowledge of the sacred language.

Irrelevant: SPECIFICATIONS

Lists.EXE was done in Borland Pascal 7® .©Borland International. Though who made it IS A STUDENT of Hebrew corrections and suggestions are twice welcome.
It can store in memory documents with 400 lines upto 255 characters, this is limited to the memory under 640K that is available in M.S. D.O. S. in REAL Mode It does NOT use Bi-directional algorithm. It is always VISUAL, nevertheless can apply this algorithm upon Loading or Saving to Disk in some encodings. The Rectangular Block, does not use additional memory, is only a SELECTION MARKER for: search a word in the Dictionary, do edges, copy or flip. The Lineal Block, that uses additional memory like a clipboard cannot be larger than 255 characters, and English or Spanish content cannot be pasted into Hebrew Fields or Hebrew into English or Spanish fields. It uses Codepage STANDARD ANSI 437 which has the more complete box drawing characters. The Hebrew letters are on the values of 223: The letter Aleph is in 224 or $E0, the letter Hvt in 250 or $FA. The sorts are carried out using the memory under the 640K. It may happen if a large document is stored in memory sorting will not be allowed. To Sort: Record the document if is important, to Leave, to Return to Lists, and then to do the Orderings before Loading the Document. Will not allow addition of inapropriate content into the dictionary to avoid confusion. Uses only the explaind encodings, in UTF-8 and Text UNICODE only cares for Hispanic tildes, ñ, borders and Hebrew letters not vowels.
