hfst-lexc [OPTIONS...] [INFILE1...]]


Compile lexc files into 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

Input/Output options:

-f, --format=FORMAT
compile into FORMAT transducer
-o, --output=OUTFILE
write result into OUTFILE

Lexc options:

-A, --alignStrings
align characters in input and output strings
-E, --encode-weights
encode weights when minimizing (default is false)
-F, --withFlags
use flags to hyperminimize result
-M, --minimizeFlags
if --withFlags is used, minimize the number of flags
-R, --renameFlags
if --withFlags and --minimizeFlags are used, rename flags (for testing)
-x, --xerox-composition=VALUE Whether flag diacritics are treated as ordinary
symbols in composition (default is true).
-X, --xfst=VARIABLE
toggle xfst compatibility option VARIABLE.
-W, --Werror
treat warnings as errors

If INFILE or OUTFILE are omitted or -, standard streams will be used The possible values for FORMAT are { sfst, openfst-tropical, openfst-log, foma, optimized-lookup-unweighted, optimized-lookup-weighted }. VALUEs recognized are {true,ON,yes} and {false,OFF,no}. Xfst variables are {flag-is-epsilon (default OFF)}.


hfst-lexc -o cat.hfst cat.lexc
Compile single-file lexicon
hfst-lexc -o L.hfst Root.lexc 2.lexc 3.lexc
Compile multi-file lexicon

Using weights:

LEXICON Root cat # "weight: 2" ; Define weight for a word <[dog::1]+> # ; Use weights in regular expressions

Using weights has an effect only if FORMAT is weighted, i.e. { openfst-tropical, openfst-log, optimized-lookup-weighted }.
