CHDRV(1)                    General Commands Manual                   CHDRV(1)



NAME
       chdrv - A Chinese console with input capability

SYNOPSIS
       chdrv [-k]

DESCRIPTION
       Chdrv is a program to let you view Chinese (both Big5 and GB code) on a
       Linux virtual console. Just type 'chdrv' to launch it.  It will find a
       free console for error logging and another free one for the actual
       chdrv session. Please edit /etc/chdrv/chinese.conf to enable GB or
       Big5.

       During a chdrv session, you can use the following function keys to
       perform various operations:

       F1     Switch to different Chinese virtual console

       F9 or CTRL-SPACE
              Switch between English/Number input mode and Chinese input mode

       F10 or CTRL-ALT-[1-9]
              Select a Chinese input method

       F11    Switch between Normal and EUC code

       F12 or SHIFT-SPACE
              Switch between Full-width and half-width characters

       SHIFT-ALT-[a-z]
              Macros, as defined in chdrv.mac

       otherwise it will launch a new session.
