NAME

       cserver - To start the Chinese server.

SYNOPSIS

       cserver  [-f file ]  [-s file ]

DEFAULT PATH

       /usr/local/bin/cWnn4/cserver

DESCRIPTION

       During  Chinese  input,  cserver  provides  the services (such as conversion services) and
       resources (such as dictionaries, grammar files etc.), required  by  the  users  (front-end
       processors).

       The  input  environment  is  provided  by  the front-end processor (cuum), which sends its
       request to the cserver, which subsequently performs the service and return the result back
       to the front-end processor.

       Normally,  once  the  system  is  up,  fork()  will  be  executed and the server runs as a
       background process. The startup of  cserver  can  be  set  in  "/etc/rc"  to  be  executed
       automatically in the Unix system.

       When  the  "cserver"  command  is  executed,  all  the settings in the initialization file
       "/usr/local/lib/wnn/zh_CN/cserverrc"  will be read and  the  corresponding  initialization
       operations will be performed.

       Besides,  all resources such as dictionaries and usage frequency files of the clients will
       be maintained by the cserver.  Refer to cWnn manual for details on "cserverrc".

       If the user happens to start up cserver after  it  has  already  been  started,  an  error
       message will be given.  Refer to cWnn manual for the error message.

OPTIONS

       -f     file
              file  is  the  specified initialization file for the server.  If this option is not
              specified, the default initialization file
              "/usr/local/lib/wnn/zh_CN/cserverrc" will be read.

       -s     file
              file is the specified logfile of cserver.  All error messages will be  directed  to
              this  specified  logfile.   When  file is specified as "-", (eg. cserver -s -), the
              error messages will be sent to the standard error output.

NOTE

       1.     The command options inside [ ] shown in the Command Format indicates that they  are
              optional.

       2.     If  they  are  not required,  "cserver" alone is sufficient to start up the Chinese
              server.
