Brecht et al. Original language Complete works computerized 

          819_cc781905-5cde-136bad5cf58d 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ It was a level that could not be imagined by this generation  itself. The AT286 had just passed the XT generation, and scanners and OCR technologies were at a very primitive level compared to today, but Marx  K. Marx_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b at the Max Planck Institute at the University of Gottingen -136bad5cf58d_Complete Works parallel to computerization work on Brecht's Old Works (GW) started. This first step 1998 To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Brecht, we are working on both old and new collections  "Brecht-Copmuter-Index 2000" (BCI2000)This is what brought about the fruit of completion.

    BCI2000 is the default  ideas are as follows Unlike humans, PCs the ability to store and process large amounts of data_to be applied to the humanities and social sciences as much as possible to computerize books or collections is the work of scholars and researchers who study literature and_cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ Readers simply enjoy IT (Information Technology) don't settle for the era_cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_  DT (Data Technology) The purpose is to prepare for the era.

   The computerization work of these books or collections is not only the computerization work of simply transferring text to the screen like copying, but also coding the entire text and Through coding work enables the exact source (volume, page, and execution location) of the text the user wants, as well as processing and analyzing vast amounts of data in a short time_cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_one computational date text ultimately "BCI2000".

Useful In order to be more productive by using these functions conveniently and conveniently,   dissemination of already completed BCI2000, as well as generalization of this function to other authors' collections_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_distributed to make it available. This is because the related IT technology has advanced considerably since the time when I worked on BCI2000 . Computational dated text (index, source, ASCII text, text in Word and PDF format) of Brecht's complete works, already DOS like a fossil in the system In addition to the spread of   various nuclear power plants that users want  computerized as well as computerized  Dissemination is the main purpose of BRECHTCODE.
