-v Prints conversion statistics to stderr.
-a Appends conversion results to an existing dictionary rather than creat-
ing a new dictionary.
Specifies the name of a JSY dictionary file.
Specifies the name of a text file in JSY format.
Specifies the name of the text file in VJE format.
Specifies the name of a text file in WX format.
Three Japanese input methods are used on a Tru64 UNIX system: the JSY input
method (Compaq), the WX input method (A.I. Soft Company), and the VJE input
method (VACS Company). Software for the JSY input method is available in
optional Tru64 UNIX subsets for Japanese language support. Software for
the other two Japanese input methods is included only with the Japanese
Tru64 UNIX product that is sold in Japan.
Each of these input methods uses a specialized dictionary for conversion
between Kana and Kanji characters. This fact makes it difficult for users
to migrate their personal dictionaries from one input method to another, or
to create a customized dictionary from a text source file for an existing
dictionary. The converters described on this reference page help support
customization and migration of private user dictionaries for Kana-Kanji
The converters described on this reference page can be used in combination
with utilities supplied with third-party software to migrate Kana-Kanji
dictionaries from one input method to another.
For the jsy2vjetxt, jsy2wxtxt, vje2jsytxt, and wx2jsytxt converters, both
file operands are optional. If neither file is specified, stdin and stdout
are used as input and output. If only one file is specified, that file is
used as input and stdout is used as output.
For the jdic2txt converter, stdin is used as input if the dictionary
operand is omitted. The conversion results are always sent to stdout.
For the txt2jdic converter, stdin is used as input. If the dictionary file
argument is omitted, results are sent to stdout.
The following diagrams show how the process for text file and dictionary
conversion differs, depending on the input method format. In these
diagrams, wx3ent and wx31st are utilities packaged with the WX input method
software, and vuty is a utility packaged with the VJE input method
+ The following diagrams show the process for converting dictionaries to
text files using the same input method format:
Text file in JSY format -> txt2jdic -> JSY dictionary
JSY dictionary -> jdic2txt -> Text file in JSY format
Text file in WX format -> wx3ent -> WX dictionary
WX dictionary -> wx31st -> Text file in WX format
Text file in VJE format -> vuty -> VJE dictionary
VJE dictionary -> vuty -> Text file in VJE format
+ The following diagrams show the process for converting text files from
one input method format to another:
Text file in JSY format -> jsy2wxtxt -> Text file in WX format
Text file in JSY format -> jsy2vjetxt -> Text file in VJE format
Text file in WX format -> wx2jsytxt -> Text file in JSY format
Text file in VJE format -> vje2jsytxt -> Text file in JSY format
+ The following diagrams show the process for converting dictionaries
from one input method to another:
JSY dict. -> jdic2txt -> jsy2wxtxt -> wx3ent -> WX dict.
JSY dict. -> jdic2txt -> jsy2vjetxt -> vuty -> VJE dict.
WX dict. -> wx31st -> wx2jsytxt -> txt2jdic -> JSY dict.
VJE dict. -> vuty -> vje2jsytxt -> txt2jdic -> JSY dict.
