The SCIM project has already achieved a lot of features and the design and implementation of SCIM project are following the goals we are pursuing.


  • Fully Object Oriented structure written in C++.
  • Highly modularized.
  • Very flexible architecture, can be used as a dynamically loaded library as well as a C/S input method environment.

  • Fully i18n support with UCS-4/UTF-8 encoding.
  • Include many handy utility functions to speedup the development.
  • GUI Panel with very rich features.
