NAME

  sim, SIM - Software phrase input method

DESCRIPTION

  The phrase input method is an	input method that is commonly used in a
  Chinese environment. The software phrase input method	(SIM) is a a mechan-
  ism supported	by the Asian tty driver, atty and the simd daemon through the
  utx facility (see atty(7), simd(8), and utx(7)).

  The stty command activates the software phrase input method, while the
  phrase utility creates and manages the phrase	database (see stty(1) and
  phrase(1)).

  Changes to the phrase	database may not be reflected in SIM sessions that
  were started before the changes were made. Therefore,	users have to stop
  and then restart SIM sessions	using the stty command to have access to the
  changed phrase database.
