kkcd - Daemon that supports the Kana-Kanji conversion service
/usr/sbin/kkcd user-id group-id kkc-db
Identifies the user being served by the daemon.
Specifies the group to which the user belongs.
Specifies the location of data needed for Kana-Kanji conversion.
The kkcd daemon supports Kana-Kanji conversion for the Japanese language
and is available only when Japanese support subsets are installed on the
system. The daemon converts an English or Kana string to one or more dif-
ferent Kanji strings and runs only when the Kana-Kanji conversion capabil-
ity of the atty terminal driver is activated. The utx pseudo device driver
acts as an communication channel between the atty terminal driver and the
kkcd daemon. The ikk parameter of the stty command spawns the kkcd and utx
daemons (see stty(1)). The stty command also includes parameters for set-
ting terminal line discipline, modes, input key sequences, and keymap data
for Kana-Kanji conversion.
