This paper describes Japanese string-manipulation and data-input facilities on ELIS. (1) Japanese string-manipulation facilities: These facilities make it possible to process Japanese characters (2-byte code) and ASCII characters (1-byte code) as the same type character, which makes programming in Japanese easier. (2) Japanese data-input facilities: Three Japanese text input method: Kanzen, Beta, and Neo have been developed in an Emacs compatible editor (Zen) implemented on ELIS. Kanzen and Beta are highly compatible with Emacs. A fast and accurate Kana-Kanji conversion algorithm has been developed.
