Command Driven Kanakanji Conversion Program

      This article describes new method of kana-kanji Conversion
Program which provides various functions by the combinations of
"Yomi" and an event.  It doesn't require the provision of various
unique key combinations or menus to support various functions as
conventional Kanakanji Conversion programs have.

      The Kana-kanji Conversion programs provides not only the basic
functions, to convert the string from "Yomi (reading)" which is input
by the operator to "Kanji Kana Majiri (Kanji Kana Mixture)", but also
support functions to assist to convert the string such as "Tango
Touroku (Word Registration)", "Bushu (Kanji element) Ichiran
(Listing)" and the dynamic dictionary switching.  The conventional
Kanakanji Conversion Program starts these support functions by the
combination of some special keys.  For example, to start "Tango
Touroku" function, the operator presses "Ctrl", "Shift" and "F3" keys
at a time.

      This method activates these support functions by the
combination of "Yomi" and one key (i.e., "Yomi" and "Function
Conversion Key").  For example, to start "Tango Touroku" function,
the operator input "Tango Touroku" and press "Conversion" key.

      This command drives kana-kanji Conversion Program provides the
way to starts unlimited functions by it's name instead of the limited
combination of some special keys.  Also, no modification is required
to support various keyboards.
