Open Source
JWPce is a free Japanese Word Processor
You must be registered and logged into HPC:Factor in order to contribute to the SCL.


JWPce has many special features. The main ones are:

Online Dictionary: JWPce uses Jim Breen's Japanese-English dictionary. This dictionary allows the user to translate both to and from Japanese, using either kanji or kana. JWPce's dictionary features are highly expanded, the program allows searching of Jim Breen's EDICT (general word dictionary), and ENAMDIC (a name dictionary containing over 168k Japanese names), as well as a number of other Japanese(English dictionaries. Additionally, a user dictionary is supported for words that you cannot find in the online dictionaries.
Radical Lookup: JWPce has the ability to lookup kanji by stroke number, and by identifying any number of radicals contained within the kanji. Thus if you can identify two or more radicals within the kanji, you can search for all kanji containing all of those radicals.
Many Different Kanji Lookup Systems: JWPce contains no less than nine kanji lookup systems.
Kanji Information: JWPce has the ability to provide a large amount of information on any kanji character, including meanings, on-yomi, kun-yomi, etc.
Auto-detect Clipboard: When importing from the clipboard JWPce can automatically detect the clipboard format. This makes reading Japanese web pages much easier.
Unicode Support: JWPce supports Unicode both in files and on the clipboard. As Unicode applications become more dominant, this feature will become even more useful. (Current Unicode applications include Internet Explorer 4.x/5.x, Word, Netscape 4.x, and all native Windows CE applications.)
Color Kanji: JWPce can display kanji in a list you generate in a different color. This allows you to color either the kanji that you don't know or the kanji that you do know.
Advanced Search: JWPce has expanded search capabilities that allow searching over multiple files.
Kanji Counting: JWPce can identify the most common kanji in a file. This list is useful for students who want to identity common kanji to learn.
Regular Actions: JWPce has a very regular approach to user interactions. This allows you to call up the kanji information box from any location, or call up the radical lookup dialog box from any edit box.
Multiple Selections: JWPce allows multiple selection to be used in almost every location. This includes the Open File... dialog box, the dictionary dialog box, the Character Information dialog box, etc. Selection of multiple items is supported wherever it makes sense.
Highly Configurable: Although JWPce is not configurable in all the ways JWP was, in many ways it is more configurable. Look through the Utilities/Options... dialog box for the major options. (Note that dictionary search options cannot be set there, use the Utilities/Dictionary... dialog box to set these).
User Conveniences: JWPce has many user conveniences built into the interface, including remembering where your window is located, reloading files you were previously working on, etc.
Network Configuration: JWPce can be installed on a network where, each user is assigned a location to store his or her personal configuration.

Installation Instructions

Windows CE JWPce Actual Windows CE (PocketPC) versions of JWPce. Due to the difference between Windows CE hardware, the Windows CE versions of JWPce are distributed in two archives. The first archive contains all files necessary for installation, except the executable file. The second archive contains the actual executable program. The included text file WINCE.TXT contains additional installation instructions and information. If you are updating your version for Windows CE, you need only get the archive specific to your processor. Thus if you are updating from JWP or from JWPce versions earlier than 1.30 you may want to get the new dictionary files (see below), or reinstall.

Windows CE International Support: These are localization files used to convert JWPce's interface into another language. If you are interested in translating to a particular language check the language section.

TECHNICAL: JWPce Code This is the full JWPce code with documentation. The code is written in C++ and compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ Version 6.0. The code is heavily commented and contains an overview file to explain the relations between the various classes and modules.

TECHNICAL: JWPce Tools These are a number of tools that I wrote for manipulating the databases used by JWPce. Generally, these are only useful for people wishing to modify the code, or make corrections in the databases. The tools package includes the code for each of the tools. The tools package includes a generator tool for generating the UNICODE conversion tables. A sorting tool for manipulating the radical and stroke count databases. Finally, a compression tool for compressing and restructuring Jim Breen's KANJIDIC file into a KANJINFO.DAT file that JWPce can use. An additional tool to compress the edict dictionary may also be in the works. This will allow compression of the dictionary file with on-the-fly decompression. If this is implemented, the disk space required by the dictionary files can be greatly reduced.
