NAME

  odld - Daemon	that supports the Software On-Demand Loading (SoftODL) ser-
  vice

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/odld user-id group-id odl-db

OPERANDS

  user-id
      Identifies the user process.

  group-id
      Specifies	the group to which the user belongs.

  odl-db
      Specifies	the location of	font files accessed by the daemon.

DESCRIPTION

  The odld daemon supports the Software	On-Demand Loading (SoftODL) service.
  This service handles font files for user-defined characters. It is avail-
  able only when optional Tru64	UNIX subsets with software for Chinese,
  Japanese, or Korean are installed on the system. The odld daemon processes
  the font loading requests issued by the Asian	terminal driver	(atty)
  through the utx pseudo device	driver.

  The odl parameter of the stty	command	spawns the odld	daemon (see stty(1)).
  The stty command includes additional parameters that affect SoftODL opera-
  tion.

FILES

  /dev/utx/utx*
      The utx device special files
