utxd - Daemon that spawns service daemons used by the Asian terminal driver
The utxd daemon spawner acts as an agent for the Asian terminal driver (atty). The utxd daemon spawns other daemons that support special services required for Asian language input. The service daemons include odld (which supports the SoftODL service), kkcd (which supports the Kana-Kanji conversion method), and simd (which supports the phrase input method). This software is available only when optional Tru64 UNIX subsets with Asian country support are installed on the system.
By using the select() system call, utxd waits for requests from the atty driver. When a request to spawn a daemon for a particular service is received by utxd, it allocates a new utx device for use by the spawned daemon. The newly created daemon then talks directly to the atty driver through the utx device.
The utxd daemon looks up the location of requested service daemon by reading the /var/adm/utx/utxd.conf configuration file.
By using the syslog() function, utxd sends error messages to the syslog files. Errors can include the following: No utx device was free, so utxd was unable to open one for a requested service. An error occurred when utxd executed the select() system call. The utxd daemon could not allocate enough memory. An error occurred when utxd attempted to send a reply message. A utxd internal error occurred.
