Fw: [Pali] Re: How to download Chatta Sangayana Tipitaka
- Dear friends,
as far as I understand, there is no Chattha Sangayana CD ROM version 4 or CSCD4. Please stop this nonsense.
The previous version is CSCD3, and it is no longer available from VRI. However, you can always burn a copy from someone else for private study. If you are technically savvy, you may download the ISO image and burn the CD-ROM from it.
There were news about the CSCD4 many years ago, but I have no idea what it was intended to be and the reasons it was stopped. However, a desktop client CST4 is available for those who are interested.
Again, the development of CST4 has stopped, and I have no idea what will happen next. CST4 was developed by Frank Snow on a voluntary basis, and I believe such works need recognition, encouragement and (at least moral) support for a lay person always has other commitments.
For myself, I still use CSCD3 occasionally, but most of the time, I just use the web version directly.

Now the Chattha Sangayana CD ROM version 4 has come out. It is about 250 MB and it is very helpful and it is possible to download on computer. It provides whole Tipitaka, atthakatha, tika and some prominent classics like Visuddhimagga. The search provision is good but we cannot find words with diacritical marks. The dictionary is quite excellent.
