MKDIC(1)                    General Commands Manual                   MKDIC(1)



NAME
       mkdic - Tool for creating a user dictionary

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       -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.

EXAMPLES
       (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 -

       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.
