       cannaserver - Kana-Kanji conversion server


       cannaserver [-d] [-u userid] [-inet] [-inet6] [-l n] [-syslog] [-p num] [ddpath]


       cannaserver(1)  provides  the  Kana-Kanji  conversion  service.  Most commonly this daemon
       starts at daemon bootup framework like /etc/rc depending on your system,  so  you  do  not
       usually start it up manually.

       By  default,  cannaserver(1)  only accepts connections from clients at the same host where
       the server is running (via UNIX domain socket).  You can make  it  accessible  from  other
       hosts  via  TCP by using option -inet (or -inet6). Whether you use this option or not, you
       can get access control based on user and host using /etc/hosts.canna.

       cannaserver(1) immediately forks and gets into the background after it starts.  You do not
       need to use '&' explicitly to make it run in the background.

       When it starts, cannaserver(1) creates the UNIX domain socket /tmp/.iroha_unix/IROHA[:num]
       to communicate clients.  The socket is deleted automatically if cannaserver(1)  terminates
       normally.  The socket may exist while cannaserver(1) is not running (because, for example,
       cannaserver(1) terminated abnormally).  In this case, delete  the  file  manually  or  you
       cannot start it.

       /var/lib/canna/dic/*/dics.dir  includes  the  list  of dictionaries which are available to
       clients. Users (i.e. clients) can choose which to use and specify them in ~/.canna.


       ddpath      Specifies the directory that contains dictionaries.

       -inet       This option lets cannaserver(1) accept connections  from  remote  hosts  using
                   inet  domain  socket  (IPv4).   By  default, the cannaserver(1) uses only UNIX
                   domain socket, i.e. only clients in your local  machine  can  connect  to  the

       -inet6      Enable  IPv6.  If this option is used solely, IPv4 access is disabled.  If you
                   want to use IPv4 at the same time, use both -inet and -inet6.

       -l n        Outputs the cannaserver(1) log to /tmp/canna.log.  n (1 to  5)  specifies  the
                   log level.

       -d          Starts  cannaserver(1)  in  debug  mode.   It  is  executed  as the foreground
                   process.  Log data at log level 5 is output to the standard output.

       -u userid   Specifies which user cannaserver(1) runs as.  By default, cannaserver(1)  runs
                   as the user who started cannaserver(1).

       -syslog     Outputs the cannaserver(1) log to syslogd(8). If you specify this option, logs
                   are not output to /var/log/canna/CANNA?msgs.

       -p num      By this option cannaserver(1) uses the port number 5680  +  num.  The  default
                   port  number  is  5680.  This option also has an effect on the filename of the
                   socket and the log file. See below.


               Socket. [:num] part is added only when you specify -p.

               Log file. "?" is replaced with num specified with -p, and defaults to 0 without -p
               num.  Log messages are not output to this file when -syslog is specified.
