cuum - To start the front-end processor.
cuum [-h/H] [-x/X]
[-k uumkeyfile ] [-c convertkeyfile ]
[-r rkfile ] [-D hostname ]
[-n username ] [-l lines ]
There are two more input environments:
(1) Pinyin centred input environment
(2) Zhuyin centred input environment
These two environments can be started up by using the "-r" option of
the "cuum" command together with the default path of each input
environment. For example, to activate Pinyin centred input
environment, execute the following:
cuum -r /usr/local/lib/wnn/zh_CN/rk_p
Once "cuum" is executed, the initialization file for the front-end
processor will be read from ONE of the following paths, in decreasing
(1) The file specified by the UUMRC C-Shell environment
(3) /usr/local/lib/wnn/zh_CN/uumrc (default path)
After the initialization file is read, all the initializing operations
set in the file will be performed.
If the user happens to start up cuum after it has already been started,
an error message will be given. Refer to cWnn manual for the error
-H The input mode will be set to ON after the startup of cuum.
-h The input mode will be set to OFF after the startup of cuum
-X During cuum startup, the flow control of tty is ON (default).
-x During cuum startup, the flow control of tty is OFF.
Specify the keyboard definition file. If this option is not
specified, ONE of the following definition files will be read by
default, in decreasing order:
(1) The filename indicated by "setuumkey" in the
initialization file "uumrc".
Specify the conversion file for the keyboard input codes. If
this option is not specified, ONE of the following files will be
read by default, in decreasing order:
(1) The filename indicated by "setconvkey" in the
initialization file "uumrc" .
Specify the directory of the input mode definition file of the
input automaton. If this option is not specified, ONE of the
followings will be read by default, in decreasing order:
(1) The directory indicated by "setrkfile" in the
initialization file "uumrc".
Specify the number of lines for input at the front-end
processor. (0 < lines < window_line-1).
The maximum input line is the window line minus one. The
default line number is 1.
Specify the server at another host indicated by
hostname. In this case, each user environment may be set via
"setenv" in the front-end processor initialization file, for
If no hostname is specified, the one specified by the
environment variable CSERVER will be used.
Specify the username for the front-end processor. If the
username is not specified, the value in environment variable
UUMUSER will be taken as the default value. If UUMUSER is not
defined, the username of the current front-end processor will be
1. The command options inside [ ] shown in the Command Format
indicates that they are optional. If they are not required,
"cuum" alone is sufficient to start up the front-end processor.
2. During the startup of cuum, a "pty" is required from the
operating system. If "pty" is unable to be obtained, cuum
startup will fail. Similarly, if the initialization file, input
automaton definition files and keyboard definition file cannot
be read in, cuum startup will also fail.
