I've ported the IM engine to SCIM as well (Both the SCIM and IIIMF engines share the same parser).

IIIMF info:

1. Main web site: http://www.openi18n.org/
2. I used the 12.3.91 branch. This came as a package in the linux distro I'm using (Kubuntu Feisty). The SDK can be downloaded from http://www.openi18n.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=104&page=1
3. The tar ball  provides a template which can easily be ported.
4. The API is at: http://www.openi18n.org/im/spi/LEI.html (also comes with the SDK).
5. There's also a FAQ available at the main website.

I've also included a README doc in the IIIMF source on how to build it etc.

The SLS1134 standard recommends using the Ctrl + Alt to simulate the AltGr key. Don't know if this is a workable solution because, key combinations such as ctrl+alt+A, ctrl+alt+Z and ctrl+alt+X seem to be reserved by the X-window system. I'll try and see if I can get the right ALT key to simulate it.

කොහොම හරි, දැන් SCIM සහ IIIMF විජේසේකර යතුරු පුවරු පාවිච්චි කරන්න පුළුවන් තත්ත්වෙකයි තියෙන්නෙ.

If anybody likes to try them out, please let me know and I'll email the sources.

Perhaps you could write a description/summary of IIIMF to the
sinhala-technical list? Also explain how a module can be written for

The safest bet is to use the same license as the IIIMF core.

patches/diffs of many lines of code is hard to maintain. Are IIIMF
modules like SCIM modules? I would prefer sources files are checked in.
