Canna provides a unified user interface for Japanese input. It is based
on a client-server model and supports automatic kana-to-kanji conversion.
It supports multiple clients (including kinput2 and canuum), and allows
them all to work in the same way, sharing customization files,
romaji-to-kana conversion rules and conversion dictionaries.
This package provides the Canna server program and dictionary files.
