tcode information

[Last Update 970902]

What is tcode ?

(direct two stroke points one kanji code)

t-code is one of the two bytes charactor input method invented by professor Yamada . Instead of using kana(phonetic) code of phrases into Kanji conversion, two stroke of the keyboard designates solid one particular Kanji charactor. say, if you type 'LHIH' (of qwerty stuff), it shows '藤原' in that mode.

(Available drivers)

Macintosh driver, Elisp for Mule and for Windows 3.1 version (Not for Windows 95 nor NT) are available. If you are using Windows 95, you may have chance to use Mule for Windows and run Elisp code on it.

(Info in Japanese)

The information in Japanese is available here -> tcode (two stroke direct Kanji Input Method) in the page of Taro Kawahara. You may be interested in reading my old mail posted to tcode-ml "Why Fujiwara insists tcode" in Japanese.
