BrailleMaster uses the following file types:
These files have the extension RUL and contain Braille rules specified using the LOUIS symbolic language. For example:
GRADE0.RUL is a rule file containing a set of Computer Braille
Other Rule Files for different languages or special applications may be also included in your BrailleMaster package. Rule Files are ASCII text files and may be viewed and edited.
These files have the extension CTL and serve to describe your output device, a printer or Braille embosser. For example:
PLAIN.CTL is a control file suitable for most Braille embossers.
This control file is also suitable for most other general
Braille embossers such as Thiel, Versapoint, etc.
Other Control Files may be included in your BrailleMaster package. Control Files are ASCII text files and may be viewed and edited.
Environment Set-up File
Rule files and Control files can be grouped together into user definable 'enviroments'. A user can quickly select a working environment (for example 'Grade 2 rules using the Everest embosser') suitable for the given application. These working environments are defined in a file called SETUP.BM.
SETUP.BM is an ASCII text file which contains several predefined working environments to choose from. These can be altered by the user.
Other common files include the following:
READ.ME, containing installation instructions and details of any changes or additions to BrailleMaster
BM.TXT, containing an ASCII text version of the user's manual
SAMPLE.TXT, containing a sample text for BrailleMaster demonstrations
Other files may be also added in the BrailleMaster package. If so, these would be described in the READ.ME file.
