gendict - Compiles word list into ICU string trie dictionary


gendict [ --uchars | --bytes --transform transform ] [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ]
[ -c, --copyright ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -i, --icudatadir directory ] input-file


gendict reads the word list from dictionary-file and creates a string trie dictionary
file. Normally this data file has the .dict extension.

Words begin at the beginning of a line and are terminated by the first whitespace. Lines
that begin with whitespace are ignored.


-h, -?, --help
Print help about usage and exit.

-V, --version
Print the version of gendict and exit.

-c, --copyright
Embeds the standard ICU copyright into the output-file.

-v, --verbose
Display extra informative messages during execution.

-i, --icudatadir directory
Look for any necessary ICU data files in directory. For example, the file
pnames.icu must be located when ICU's data is not built as a shared library. The
default ICU data directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA. Most
configurations of ICU do not require this argument.

Set the output trie type to UChar. Mutually exclusive with --bytes.

Set the output trie type to Bytes. Mutually exclusive with --uchars.

Set the transform type. Should only be specified with --bytes. Currently supported
transforms are: offset-<hex-number>, which specifies an offset to subtract from all
input characters. It should be noted that the offset transform also maps U+200D to
0xFF and U+200C to 0xFE, in order to offer compatibility to languages that require
these characters. A transform must be specified for a bytes trie, and when applied
to the non-value characters in the input-file must produce output between 0x00 and

The source file to read.

The file to write the output dictionary to.


The input-file is assumed to be encoded in UTF-8. The integers in the input-file that are
used as values must be made up of ASCII digits. They may be specified either in hex, by
using a 0x prefix, or in decimal. Either --bytes or --uchars must be specified.


ICU_DATA Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to
${prefix}/share/icu/55.1/. Some tools in ICU depend on the presence of the
trailing slash. It is thus important to make sure that it is present if ICU_DATA
is set.
