I am using the standard miktex package

\usepackage{devanagari}

however, using the same input examples as written in the file manual produces very different results, i.e. there is a duplication of vowels nearly after every letter. instead of devAnAM priyaH, the output becomes daeva a a na a a m parai ... etc.

The document in full is:

\documentclass[A4,11pt]{report}
\usepackage{devanagari}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}
\input dnmacs

    {\dn devaanaa.m priya.h}

\end{document}

You are probably misunderstanding how the devanagari package works.

I saved your example in a file gyalten.tex and typeset it with pdflatex (but removed \input dnmacs, which is foreign to LaTeX) and got

which is possibly what you mean by daeva a a na a a m parai.

If I change the name of the file to gyalten.dn as

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{report}
\usepackage{devanagari}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

    {\dn devaanaa.m priya.h}

\end{document}

then run the script devnag from the command line

devnag gyalten

so that a file gyalten.tex is produced. Running pdflatex on this preprocessed file gives

which might be the expected result. Sorry, I know nothing else about Devanagari.

  • Yes, the output is exactly how it should be. Wonderful. Now I'll try and reproduce that. Thank you, Commented Jan 16, 2016 at 22:06
