mkdic






mkdic − Tool for creating a user dictionary

mkdic [{−cs|−cannaserver} canna‐server] [−s] [− | −l local‐
file] remote‐dic



     mkdic creates user dictionary named remote‐dic in the
user dictionary directory of the remote host, on which
cannaserver(1M) is in operation.  Dictionary file name
remote‐dic is assigned to this file at this time.

     If the − and −l option isn’t specified, mkdic creates
an empty dictionary.

     If the − option is specified, the standard input will
be used as the dictionary file. If the −l option is
specified, local‐file will be used as the dictionary file.

     If the user dictionary directory does not exist, it
will be created.

     Dictionary directory file — dics.dir — is rewritten
automatically after the registering. The registered
dictionary can thus be used by writing the dictionary name
into the customize file.



−cs canna‐server (or −cannaserver canna‐server)
            Specifies the server machine that contains the
            dictionary to be created.

−s          Indicates that the dictionary to be created is
            an adjunct dictionary.  If this option is
            omitted, the dictionary will be created as an
            independent‐word one.

−l local‐file
            Registers the input data from local‐file.

−           The standard input will be used as the
            dictionary file.



(1) If you want to creat an empty dictionary file:

      % mkdic test

(2) If you want to register the input data from the standard
    input:

      % mkdic test −









                             ‐2‐


     Registers the input data from the standard input, in
the user dictionary directory under dictionary name
‘‘test’’.  The following line is then added to dictionary
directory file — dics.dir — :

          user1.t(.mwd) −test−


(3) If the dictionary file is specified:

      % mkdic test −l test1.t


     Registers independent‐word dictionary file ‘‘test1.t’’
in the remote host’s user dictionary directory under
dictionary name ‘‘test’’.  The following line is then added
to dics.dir:

         user1.t(.mvd) −test−


     user1.t is a dictionary file name generated
automatically by the system.
