Keyboard input in Chinese DOS6.22
Posted on 2006-04-17
I'm currently playing with MSDOS6.22 Chinese Edition. It uses something called PDOS and a keyboard called HZKBD (presumably HangZi). I can switch between English and Chinese quite easily by pressing Ctrl Space. In Chinese mode, I can type in words in Pin Yin and it comes up with the top 10 ideographs with that sound. My problem is, if the ideograph that I want isn't in the list, how do I get it to show me the next 10?
eg If I want the jing as in BeiJing. I type jing and get 10 variants but not the Jing as in BeiJing. How do I move to the next 10? The alternative is to type beijing and get two characters, move over the jing and delete the bei but I don't really want to do that.
