cannaserver - Kana-Kanji conversion server
cannaserver [-d] [-u userid] [-inet] [-inet6] [-l n] [-syslog] [-p num]
cannaserver(1M) provides the Kana-Kanji conversion service. Most com-
monly this daemon starts at daemon bootup framework like /etc/rc
depending on your system, so you do not usually start it up manually.
By default, cannaserver(1M) only accepts connections from clients at
the same host where the server is running (via UNIX domain socket).
You can make it accessible from other hosts via TCP by using option
-inet (or -inet6). Whether you use this option or not, you can get
access control based on user and host using /etc/hosts.canna.
cannaserver(1M) immediately forks and gets into the background after it
starts. You do not need to use ’&’ explicitly to make it run in the
When it starts, cannaserver(1M) creates the UNIX domain socket
/var/run/.iroha_unix/IROHA[:num] to communicate clients. The socket is
deleted automatically if cannaserver(1M) terminates normally. The
socket may exist while cannaserver(1M) is not running (because, for
example, cannaserver(1M) terminated abnormally). In this case, delete
the file manually or you cannot start it.
/var/lib/canna/dic/*/dics.dir includes the list of dictionaries which
are available to clients. Users (i.e. clients) can choose which to use
and specify them in ~/.canna.
ddpath Specifies the directory that contains dictionaries.
-inet This option lets cannaserver(1M) accept connections from
remote hosts using inet domain socket (IPv4). By default,
the cannaserver(1M) uses only UNIX domain socket, i.e. only
clients in your local machine can connect to the server.
-inet6 Enable IPv6. If this option is used solely, IPv4 access is
disabled. If you want to use IPv4 at the same time, use
both -inet and -inet6.
-l n Outputs the cannaserver(1M) log to /tmp/canna.log. n (1 to
5) specifies the log level.
-d Starts cannaserver(1M) in debug mode. It is executed as
the foreground process. Log data at log level 5 is output
to the standard output.
-u userid Specifies which user cannaserver(1M) runs as. By default,
cannaserver(1M) runs as the user who started can-
-syslog Outputs the cannaserver(1M) log to syslogd(8). If you spec-
ify this option, logs are not output to
-p num By this option cannaserver(1M) uses the port number 5680 +
num. The default port number is 5680. This option also has
an effect on the filename of the socket and the log file.
Socket. [:num] part is added only when you specify -p.
Access control file
Log file. "?" is replaced with num specified with -p, and
defaults to 0 without -p num. Log messages are not output to
this file when -syslog is specified.
