The “meta-port” for the SKK Japanese-input software

SKK Simple Kana Kanji Convertor is a very fast and efficient Japanese input method system, written in emacs-lisp. SKK runs on NEmacs Japanized Emacs18, Mule MULtilingual Emacs, and Demacs DOS version of Emacs18/NEmacs.

This package does not contain anything by itself – it is a “meta-port” that depends on other SKK packages skkserv, skk-elisp, skk-jisyo, and skk-tools. Its sole purpose is to require dependencies so users can install this package only and have all the SKK stuff pulled in by the port/package dependency mechanism.
