Hiding/Showing Entries of System Dictionary in Kana-To-Kanji Con version

       A system dictionary in a Kana-to-Kanji conversion system
is described which has hiding/showing information of each entry.  A
conversion program in the system uses the information in the
functions of initial, second and all-candidate-list conversions.  An
operator can change the information from hiding to showing and from
showing to hiding easily.  The hidden entries are regarded as no
entries in the dictionary.

      There are so many different kinds of KANJI expressions with
respect to a same input (YOMI).  For example, there are two or more
ways of OKURIGANA (endings) and KANJI limitations by writer's style
or free-choice.  But prior-art system dictionaries had fixed entries
or deleted entries.

      An operator can prepare the system dictionary for his/her work
with an editor to revive hiding/showing information of entries.

      SYSTEM DICTIONARY EDIT PROGRAM: This program changes entry's
information, hiding or showing, and files.

      DICTIONARY CONSULTATION SUB-PROGRAM: This program checks
whether the entries have 'hiding' information after consulting
dictionary, as shown in the drawing.
