hfst-fst2strings [OPTIONS...] [INFILE]


Display the strings recognized by a transducer

Common options:

-h, --help
Print help message
-V, --version
Print version info
-v, --verbose
Print verbosely while processing
-q, --quiet
Only print fatal erros and requested output
-s, --silent
Alias of --quiet

Fst2strings options:

-n, --max-strings=NSTR
print at most NSTR strings
-N, --nbest=NBEST
print at most NBEST best strings
-r, --random=NRAND
print at most NRAND random strings
-c, --cycles=NCYC
follow cycles at most NCYC times
-w, --print-weights
display the weight for each string
-S, --print-separator
print separator "--" after each transducer
-e, --epsilon-format=EPS
print epsilon as EPS
-X, --xfst=VARIABLE
toggle xfst compatibility option VARIABLE

Ignore paths if:

-b, --beam=B
output string weight not within B from the weight of the best output string
-l, --max-in-length=MIL
input string longer than MIL
-L, --max-out-length=MOL
output string longer than MOL
-p, --in-prefix=OPREFIX
input string not beginning with IPREFIX
-P, --out-prefix=OPREFIX
output string not beginning with OPREFIX
-u, --in-exclude=IXSTR
input string containing IXSTR
-U, --out-exclude=OXST
output string containing OXSTR

If OUTFILE or INFILE is missing or -, standard streams will be used. Format of result depends on format of INFILE If all NSTR, NBEST and NCYC are omitted, all possible paths are printed: NSTR, NBEST and NCYC default to infinity. NBEST overrides NSTR and NCYC NRAND overrides NBEST, NSTR and NCYC B must be a non-negative float If EPS is not given, default is empty string. Numeric options are parsed with strtod(3). Xfst variables supported are { obey-flags, print-flags, print-pairs, print-space, quote-special }.
