Code Input Extension

      Disclosed is a New Code Input Method that enables a user to get
the same word much easier after the first time.

1.  At the second time, the user can get the same word by inputting
    YOMI (sometimes original YOMI) instead of doing Code Input again.
    Therefore, there is no need for the user to remember the Code
    Number or search it again.

2.  At the second time, the user can get the same word in Kanji mode
    without changing the input mode to Code Input Mode.

      After 4 in the following example, Kana to Kanji Conversion
Program shows its YOMI.

      The next time, the user inputs YOMI only and depresses the
HENKAN key, after which the word is available.

Example:

1.  Search JIS Code Number of kanji "A".

2.  Change input mode to Code Input Mode.  Kana to Kanji Conversion
    Program shows as following at the shift line.

         JIS kuten ==>    *

3.  Input JIS Code Number, 7163.

         JIS kuten ==> 7163*

4.  Depress Enter Key.

5.    Show kanji "A" and YOMI at the shift line (YOMI is aaaa).

         JIS kuten ==> 7163*      YOMI ==> aaaa

6.  If the user wants to get "A" again, it is only necessary to input
    "aaaa" and depress HENKAN key.

The user can change the YOMI, if desired, by using Word Register
function.  This is convenient when YOMI is hard to remember.

Example:

1.  Same as above operation, from 1 to 4.

2.  Show kanji "A" and YOMI at the shift line...
