ps auxwww | grep -i 'canna' 

would be the 'safest' way to check.  I think the actual binary is
'cannaserver', so you could grep for that instead.

Well, Wnn uses control-\ to put you into J input mode... it's totally
different for Canna, though, and I don't remember how (I don't think it's
nearly as elegant as Wnn).  Oh, and after you're done with the hiragana,
hit the space bar to perform the kana/kanji conversion (again, this is
with Wnn, and this assumes that PJE's version of Wnn is either version 6
or has the same input method as Wnn6 does).

Oh, and I know jonathan asked me about this earlier - we DO have a CD of
Dp/Note and Wnn6 (full versions) for sale, which basically will upgrade
TLJ standard to TLJ pro.  Wnn6 (the full version) is REALLY good (blows
away Canna), and I (and the rest of the Japanese staff here) recommend it
- we all use it.

What version of Wnn comes with PJE, anyway?
