cstartend - cWnn Startup and Termination


Startup of cserver


To start up cWnn, first, you need to start the cserver. Type the following command at the C Shell prompt:

% cserver <CR>

The default path of cserver is "/usr/local/bin/cWnn4/". If the user has not set this path, he can either set it and type the command directly, or type the full pathname of cserver while executing this command.

cserver will only be started up once. You may confirm the existence of cserver by using the "cwnnstat" command.

Startup of client module, cuum


After starting cserver, the cWnn client module "cuum" may be started up.

To start "cuum", type the following command at the C Shell prompt of a Chinese window:

% cuum <CR>

To activate other input environments, you may use the "-r" option of the "cuum" command together with the default path of that environment. For example, to activate Pinyin input environment, do the following:

% cuum -r /usr/local/lib/wnn/zh_CN/rk_p <CR>

The default path for "cuum" is

"/usr/local/bin/cWnn4/". Many cuum's may be started at the same time on different windows. Each of them will be registered as a client at the cserver.

After a startup message, the client module, cuum, is ready to be used. To enter the input mode, press ^\.

To leave the input mode, press ^\ again.

To confirm the existence of cuum, you may also use ^\.

Termination of cuum


In order to terminate a client process, press ^D.

The cserver will save all the usage frequency files and dictionaries of the particular client and terminate the connection between itself and that client.

Termination of cserver


To terminate the cserver, type the following command:

% cwnnkill <CR>

If some other clients still exist, a message will be displayed. In this case, you have to termiante all other client modules before you can terminate the cserver.
