NAME
       ktrans - language transliterator

SYNOPSIS
       ktrans

DESCRIPTION
       The  ktrans  program installs itself between the keyboard and /dev/cons and transliterates
       typed letter sequences into characters in languages that do not use  the  Latin	character
       set.  The language is selected by typing a control character:

       ctl-E  return to default English mode (no transliteration).

       ctl-G  Japanese	hiragana:  interpret  lower-case  letters  as a Hepburn representation of
	      hiragana.  In this mode, typing ctl-T looks up the last `word' in a  hiragana-kanji
	      dictionary  and  replaces it.  Subsequent ctl-T characters cycle through the possi-
	      bilities.  A word is the longest immediately preceding unbroken string of  hiragana
	      characters.

       ctl-K  Japanese katakana.

       ctl-R  Russian:	interpret  letters  as	Cyrillic; the transliteration is mostly phonetic,
	      with ' for myagkij-znak (), '' for tverdyj-znak () yo for , j for i-kratkaya ().

       ctl-L  Greek.

BUGS
       Considerably more sophistication is required to support ideographic languages properly.

       There is no way to generate the control characters literally.
