NAME

  utxd - Daemon	that spawns service daemons used by the	Asian terminal driver

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/utxd

DESCRIPTION

  The utxd daemon spawner acts as an agent for the Asian terminal driver
  (atty). The utxd daemon spawns other daemons that support special services
  required for Asian language input. The service daemons include odld (which
  supports the SoftODL service), kkcd (which supports the Kana-Kanji conver-
  sion method),	and simd (which	supports the phrase input method).  This
  software is available	only when optional Tru64 UNIX subsets with Asian
  country support are installed	on the system.

  By using the select()	system call, utxd waits	for requests from the atty
  driver.  When	a request to spawn a daemon for	a particular service is
  received by utxd, it allocates a new utx device for use by the spawned dae-
  mon.	The newly created daemon then talks directly to	the atty driver
  through the utx device.

  The utxd daemon looks	up the location	of requested service daemon by read-
  ing the /var/adm/utx/utxd.conf configuration file.

ERRORS

  By using the syslog()	function, utxd sends error messages to the syslog
  files. Errors	can include the	following:

    +  no ports	could be opened

       Explanation:

       No utx device was free, so utxd was unable to open one for a requested
       service.

    +  select count error

       Explanation:

       An error	occurred when utxd executed the	select() system	call.

    +  can't alloc mem

       Explanation:

       The utxd	daemon could not allocate enough memory.

    +  send error

       Explanation:

       An error	occurred when utxd attempted to	send a reply message.

    +  counter mismatch	in receive 0

       Explanation:

       A utxd internal error occurred.
