NAME

  jim_convert, jdic2txt, jsy2vjetxt, jsy2wxtxt,	txt2jdic, vje2jsytxt,
  wx2jsytxt - Convert Japanese text and	dictionary files between the JSY, WX,
  and VJE input	methods

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/i18n/bin/jdic2txt [-v] [jsy-dictionary-filename]

  /usr/i18n/bin/jsy2vjetxt [jsy-text-filename] [vje-text-filename]

  /usr/i18n/bin/jsy2wxtxt [jsy-text-filename] [wx-text-filename]

  /usr/i18n/bin/txt2jdic [[-a] jsy-dictionary-filename]

  /usr/i18n/bin/vje2jsytxt [vje-text-filename] [jsy-text-filename]

  /usr/i18n/bin/wx2jsytxt [wx-text-filename] [jsy-text-filename]

OPTIONS

  -v  Prints conversion	statistics to stderr.

  -a  Appends conversion results to an existing	dictionary rather than creat-
      ing a new	dictionary.

OPERANDS

  jsy-dictionary-filename
      Specifies	the name of a JSY dictionary file.

  jsy-text-filename
      Specifies	the name of a text file	in JSY format.

  vje-text-filename
      Specifies	the name of the	text file in VJE format.

  wx-text-filename
      Specifies	the name of a text file	in WX format.

DESCRIPTION

  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
  conversion.


  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
  software.

    +  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.
