mkdic creates user dictionary named remote-dic in the user dictionary directory of the remote host, on which cannaserver(1M) is in operation. Dictionary file name remote-dic is assigned to this file at this time.
If the - and -l option isn't specified, mkdic creates an empty dictionary.
If the - option is specified, the standard input will be used as the dictionary file. If the -l option is specified, local-file will be used as the dictionary file.
If the user dictionary directory does not exist, it will be created.
Dictionary directory file --- dics.dir --- is rewritten automatically after the registering. The registered dictionary can thus be used by writing the dictionary name into the customize file.
% mkdic test
% mkdic test -
Registers the input data from the standard input, in the user dictionary directory under dictionary name ``test''. The following line is then added to dictionary directory file --- dics.dir --- :
% mkdic test -l test1.t
Registers independent-word dictionary file ``test1.t'' in the remote host's user dictionary directory under dictionary name ``test''. The following line is then added to dics.dir:
user1.t is a dictionary file name generated automatically by the system.
