fst-infl2-daemon(1) morphological analysers


fst-infl2-daemon [ options ] <socket-no> file


-t file
Read an alternative transducer from file and use it if the main transducer fails to find an analysis. By iterating this option, a cascade of transducers may be tried to find an analysis.
Print surface and analysis symbols. (fst-infl2 only)
Print multi-character symbols without the enclosing angle brackets. (fst-infl only)
The analyses are symbolically disambiguated by returning only analyses with a minimal number of morphemes. This option requires that morpheme boundaries are marked with the tag <X>. If no <X> tag is found in the analysis string, then the program (basically) counts the number of multi-character symbols consisting entirely of upper-case characters and uses this count for disambiguation. The latter heuristic was developed for the German SMOR morphology. (This option is only available with fst-infl2 and fst-infl3.)
-e n
If no regular analysis is found, do robust matching and print analyses with up to n edit errors. The set of edit operations currently includes replacement, insertion and deletion. Each operation has currently a fixed error weight of 1. (fst-infl2 only)
-% f
Disambiguates the analyses statistically and prints the most likely analyses with at least f % of the total probability mass of the analyses. The transducer weights are read from a file obtained by appending .prob to the name of the transducer file. The weight files are created with fst-train. (fst-infl2 only)
Print the probability of each analysis. (fst-infl2 only)
use this option if the transducer was compiled on a computer with a different endianness. If you have a transducer which was compiled on a Sparc computer and you want to use it on a Pentium, you need to use this option. (fst-infl2 only)
Suppress status messages.
Print usage information.


fst-infl2-daemon is similar to fst-infl2 but but reads and writes from/to a socket.


No bugs are known so far.
