In order to quickly search and select the CJK strings, In China, most softwares have the concept of search code. For example, if we want to search for “感冒”, CJK user can type: gm, ganmao, dgjh or other search codes to search, no need to active Input method to input “感冒”, these search codes are predefind or auto generated from CJK string.
My question is: how to define these concepts in gnuhealth and Tryton, which software level is more appropriate to implement this function？
searchcode is different ID, many CJK string will have same searchcode.
Does pyson support user defined function? for example:
In those software how do they search for “gm” as in the word “pragmatic”?
I tried to find a way how to infer that “感” is (I presume but I may be wrong) “gm”. I guess it comes from the way it’s pronounced but it’s not in the unicode data of the glyph. It’s probably a database or something.
I would say that the client level have to somehow understand that you’re inputting searchcode and then turn them into their character using this database before sending the data to the server.
But then I wonder why would this way be easier than activating another input method? As I never needed to do that I don’t know how painful switching from one input method to another is in reality .
