I started to learn plain-TeX 2 weeks ago and have faced problem with russian language. Is there less painful way to include cyrilic support if I use pdfTex? I've searched through the site and haven't found expanded answer for pdfTex case, (is this possible at all or should I use something else?).

  • Do you have a specific reason to use plain TeX? It would certainly be easier to use XeLaTeX, for example. – Marijn Jul 26 '17 at 7:58
  • It's certainly possible, but non-trivial, but as already commented using a Unicode engine would make life a lot easier. Is there a specific reason to use pdfTeX here for presumably new documents? – Joseph Wright Jul 26 '17 at 8:00
  • @JosephWright, I have some reason, due to my teacher's task – M.Mass Jul 26 '17 at 8:20
  • @M.Mass Do you mean you've been set this as an assignment? – Joseph Wright Jul 26 '17 at 8:21
  • @JosephWright, yes – M.Mass Jul 26 '17 at 8:25
