Dear Jack Halpern,

we would like to use Jim Breen's KANJIDIC dictionary in SuSE Linux and
would like to ask whether that is OK with you.

KANJIDIC contains lines like the following 

$B0%(B 3025 U54c0 B8 C30 G8 S9 F1715 N304 V791 H2068 DK1310 L401 K1670 DO1249 MN3580 MP2.0997 E998 IN1675 DJ1804 DG327 P2-2-7 I2j7.4 Q0073.2 DR465 Yai1 Wae $B%"%$(B $B$"$o(B.$B$l(B $B$"$o(B.$B$l$`(B $B$+$J(B.$B$7$$(B {pathetic} {grief} {sorrow} {pathos} {pity} {sympathize} 

which have the frequency-of-use ranking (here F1715) and the SKIP
code (here P2-2-7) from your Japanese-English Character Dictionary.

By the way, thank you very much for writing this wonderful dictionary,
I own a copy myself and it has proven to be very useful in studying
Japanese.

The documentation file of KANJIDIC (which will be included in a
EDICT/KANJIDIC package of course) says about the frequency and the
SKIP code entries:

> F<num> -- the frequency-of-use ranking.  At most one  per  line.  The 
> 2,135 most-used characters have a ranking; those characters that lack 
> this field are not ranked.  The frequency is a number from 1 to 2,135 
> that expresses the relative frequency of occurrence of a character in 
> modern  Japanese.  The  data  is based on statistics published by The 
> National Language Research Institute (Tokyo), interpreted and adapted 
> by Jack Halpern in a manner to make it useful  to  the  learner.  The 
> data  is  derived  from the New Japanese-English Character Dictionary

Would you be so kind to allow us to use Jim Breen's KANJIDIC including
these two fields?

Yours sincerely,

      Mike
