NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Korean, korean - Introduction to Korean language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       KS X 1001 is a Korean national standard that defines a set
       of graphic characters to be used  for  information  interchange.
   The operating system supports this standard with
       coded character sets, locales, device, and other kinds  of
       system  files.  The  former  name  for the Korean national
       standard was KS C 5601. Under its old name,  the  standard
       was issued in 1982, 1987, and 1992.

       The  operating  system  currently  supports  the KS X 1001
       standard as issued in 1992, but does not include the Johab
       subset  of  Hangul characters in the DEC Korean and Korean
       EUC codesets that are discussed in  this  reference  page.
       The  standard  specifies that support for the Johab subset
       of Hangul characters is optional.

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Korean  by  means of locales, codeset converters, or both:
       The string deckorean represents this codeset in the  names
       of  locales  and  codeset converters. See deckorean(5) for
       more information.

              If Korean character mapping in an input  file  that
              you  want to convert to DEC Korean conforms to Version
 1.1 of the Unicode standard, you must  preprocess
    the    data    by    running    the    UNICODE-1-1-UCS-4_UCS-4
 converter before  running  the
              UCS-4_deckorean  converter.   If the character mapping
 of an input file conforms to  Version  2.0  or
              later  of  the Unicode standard, this preprocessing
              step is not necessary.

              If the output from  the  cp949_UTF-8  codeset  converter
 is then converted to DEC Korean, some Hangul
              characters may be lost. See code_page(5)  for  more
              information.   The  string  eucKR  represents  this
              codeset in the names of locales  and  codeset  converters.
  See  eucKR(5)  for more information.  The
              strings UTF-16, UCS-4, and  UTF-8  represent  these
              encoding formats in the names of locales or codeset
              converters. See Unicode(5)  for  more  information.
              The string cp949 represents this encoding format in
              the names of codeset converters.  See  code_page(5)
              for  more information.  The string ISO-2022-KR represents
 this encoding format in the names of  codeset
 converters.  These are special-purpose converters
 used only by certain mail applications.

       See the i18n_intro(5) reference page for general  information
 about codesets. See the iconv_intro(5) reference page
       for a discussion of codeset  converters  and  how  to  use

   Korean Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  following list specifies Korean locales for Korea and
       the codesets they support:

       ko_KR.deckorean, for DEC Korean
       ko_KR.eucKR, for Korean EUC
       ko_KR.UTF-8, for UTF-8

       The  ko_KR.deckorean  locale  has  a  ko_KR.deckorean@ucs4
       variant  for  use by applications that need to convert DEC
       Korean to UCS-4 process code in order to  perform  certain
       character-classification operations. The UTF-8 locale also
       uses UCS-4 process code but expects file  code  to  be  in
       UTF-8 format.

       You  can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to display
       the  names  of  locales  installed  on  your  system.  See
       i18n_intro(5)  for  information on setting locale from the
       operating system command line.

       In the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you need  to  set
       the  session language at login time. Use the Language menu
       that is accessed from the Options button of the Login window.

   Keyboards, Input Servers, and Input Methods
       The operating system supports the VT382-K Korean terminal.

       You can use any  standard  English  PC-style  keyboard  to
       enter  Korean.   See  the  keyboard(5)  reference page for
       information on loading keyboard mapping  tables  (keymaps)
       for keyboards.

       For  a  Motif  environment  like CDE, the operating system
       provides the dxhangulim and dxim input servers to  support
       Korean  input  methods.  The  dxhangulim  input  server is
       started automatically for your CDE session when you  specify
  Korean  as  your  session language at login time. See
       dxhangulim(1X) and dxim(1X)  for  more  information  about
       these input servers.

       Korean  characters  can  be entered by the following input
       methods: Hangul Hanja Row-Column Code Phrase Input Method

       You select the Korean input method by using a key  or  key
       sequence as follows: If you are using a VT382-K terminal:

              Compose selects Hangul
              Shift+Compose selects Hanja
              Ctrl+Compose selects Row-Column
              If you are using any PC-style keyboard:

              Shift+Space selects Hangul
              Shift+Alt+Space selects Hanja
              Ctrl+Alt+Space selects Row-Column
              F6 selects Phrase
              If  you  are using the dxim input server, use F3 to
              invoke the Korean input method in combination  with
              F5  to  select  Hangul.  Once  in Hangul, use F6 to
              switch to Hanja or F7 to switch to Row-Column.  Use
              F5  to  switch back to Hangul. The F12 function key
              selects Phrase input.

       You can customize these key sequences by  using  the  Customization
 menu of the dxhangulim or dxim applications.

   Fonts for Motif Applications    [Toc]    [Back]
       X or Motif applications require non-ASCII fonts to display
       Korean characters.  An application can find  Korean  fonts
       in     either     of     the     following    directories:
       /usr/i18n/lib/X11/fonts/decwin/75dpi, for  low  resolution
       display  /usr/i18n/lib/X11/fonts/decwin/100dpi,  for  high
       resolution display

       For applications running under CDE, no user  commands  are
       necessary  to  make  Korean  fonts  available  if they are
       installed on the system or provided through a font server.
       For  applications  running  in other environments, you may
       need to use the following command to check the font  path:
       % xset q

       If  one of the directories in the preceding list is not in
       the font path, the following example shows how to add  the
       directory.  You can substitute 100dp for 75dpi if you want
       high resolution display.

       %  xset  +fp  /usr/i18n/lib/X11/decwin/75dpi/  %  xset  fp

   Printers    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating system supports the following Korean printers.
 The associated print filter is noted  in  parentheses
       following  the  printer  name.   The  LA380-K  is a Korean
       graphic line printer.   The  DL510-KA  is  a  Korean  page

       For information on setting up and configuring these printers,
 refer to the i18n_printing(5) and lprsetup(8)  reference

       For  information  on how to use other kinds of printers to
       print  Korean  characters,   see   the   i18n_printing(5),
       pcfof(8), and wwpsof(8) reference pages.

       Fonts  that  support  characters defined by the DEC Korean
       codeset are listed in the deckorean(5) reference page.
