CSERVER( )                                                          CSERVER( )




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 ini-
       tialization 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 speci-
              fied 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 indi-
              cates that they are optional.

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