If OUTFILE or INFILE is missing or -, standard streams will be used. Format of result

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 }.
