It sure does "retain control over XIM" -- it shuts it down entirely. XIM probably can be made to work without access to an X display, but it would be a hell of a lot of work that as far as I know hasn't been done. For console apps, you need something that talks directly to the henkan server, and for free software clients that probably limits you to Wnn (maybe 6, though), Canna, SJ3, maybe SKK, and anything that Emacs speaks (basically Quail and SKK for vanilla GNU Emacs, plus Canna and Wnn for emacs-dl, plus SJ3 for XEmacs) in a shell buffer. ATOK and other proprietary services (eg, exported over a LAN from Sun and HP systems) and the like are out AFAIK, they all use XIM. In practice, I believe there are (console) versions of most vi clones that talk to Canna and Wnn4/FreeWnn at least. You may be able to use X-enabled vi on the console, but it won't be able to talk XIM from there. -- University of Tsukuba Tennodai 1-1-1 Tsukuba 305-8573 JAPAN Institute of Policy and Planning Sciences Tel/fax: +81 (298) 53-5091 _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________ What are those straight lines for?
