       cserver - To start the Chinese server.


       cserver  [-f file ]  [-s file ]




       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.


       -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.


       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.
