    Enhancements for CJK support regarding the sort routines for Chinese. Note that this is relevant only to customers who use CJK.

    In order to use the Chinese sort routines based on PINYIN or stroke sequence, execute the following steps:

    1. Load the ./dat01/tab/Z114 table into the Oracle database as follows:

    >> dlib dat01
    >> dt
    >> csh -f $aleph_proc/p_file_04 dat01,z114

    2. Set the CJK_LANG flag in ./metalib_conf/metalib_start to the appropriate value:

    "N" - Default, no CJK language is in use
    "C" - Chinese, activate sort routines using PINYIN
    "T" - Chinese for Taiwan, activate sort routines using stroke sequence
    "K" - Korean, using "hanja_to_hangul" transformation on Chinese characters

    >> cd $metalib_conf
    >> vi metalib_start

    setenv CJK_LANG "C"

    Save the file.

    >> source $metalib_conf/metalib_start

    3. Re-index the dat01 database:

    >> $aleph_proc/p_index_database dat01
