Web2C: A TeX implementation
Omega is a version of the TeX program modified for multilingual
typesetting. It uses unicode, and has additional primitives for
(among other things) bidirectional typesetting.

One caveat: In most Omega formats, you cannot use ~ in a filename you
give directly to Omega, because ~ is an active character, and hence is
expanded, not taken as part of the filename. Other programs, such as
Metafont, do not have this problem.
Normally, Omega puts its output files in the current directory. If
any output file cannot be opened there, it tries to open it in the
directory specified in the environment variable TEXMFOUTPUT.
There is no default value for that variable. For example, if you say

This version of Omega implements a number of optional extensions.
In fact, many of these extensions conflict to a greater or lesser
extent with the definition of Omega. When such extensions are

with most software designed to handle
