RkInitialize — initialize the kana-kanji conversion functions


#include <canna/RK.h>
int RkInitialize(dhdpath)
char *dhdpath;


RkInitialize initiates the kana-kanji conversion functions.  dhdpath names the dictionary home directory.

Because this library permits multiple kana-kanji conversions to proceed concurrently, it uses the conversion context method of control to manage the kana-kanji conversions.  Each context contains internal data needed to perform a kana-kanji conversion.

Users identify the conversion contexts from one another by their context number.  A context number is an integer of 0 or greater and is used as the first parameter of the kana-kanji conversion function.

Right after the kana-kanji conversion functions are initialized by RkInitialize, only the standard context with context number 0 exists.  Applications using only one context can use the standard context.

Return Value

This function returns 0 if successful; otherwise, it returns -1.
