Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

E-Tutor for the Sanskrit


Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India

Supplied note:
"I am writing to draw your attention to a tutor for the Sanskrit Language that a student of mine and I have created. The software is freely downloadable from our website [see below - ed.].
The version which is presented at this time is intended for IBM PCs under Windows; but since the package has been created in Java - a platform-neutral programming language - a little modification will enable it to be run on any type of computer that can be used to surf the web. (The only reason why I cannot at this time provide a version for the Apple, or other type of computer, is because I don't have access to any but IBM PCs.)
The package is not quite complete, yet. At this time we are offering four Chapters and a section on diacritics; but more will shortly be added. (Even this means 1.5 million lines of code, however!) I will be grateful if you can visit the website, download the tutor, and give me the benefit of your opinion. - sk."
