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

Input/Output options:

-1, --input1=INFILE1
Read first input transducer from INFILE1
-2, --input2=INFILE2
Read second input transducer from INFILE2
-C, --do-not-convert
Do not allow transducers to be converted into the same type
-o, --output=OUTFILE
Write results to OUTFILE


-H, --do-not-harmonize Do not harmonize symbols.
-e, --eliminate-flags
Eliminate flag diacritics.

If OUTFILE, or either INFILE1 or INFILE2 is missing or -, standard streams will be used. INFILE1, INFILE2, or both, must be specified. Format of result depends on format of INFILE1 and INFILE2; both should have the same format.

The operation is applied pairwise for INFILE1 and INFILE2 that must have the same number of transducers. If INFILE2 has only one transducer, the operation is applied for each transducer in INFILE1 keeping the second transducer constant.
