NAME
wnnatod - Convert an EUC text dictionary to a binary dictionary SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/wnnatod [-s num] [-R] [-S] [-U] [-r] [-N] [-n] [-P filename] [-p filename] [-I] [-e] [-h filename] binary_dictionary_filename DESCRIPTION
wnnatod reads a Japanese EUC text dictionary from the standard input, converts it to a binary dictionary and writes it to the specified binary_dictionary_filename. OPTIONS
The following options are available. -s num Specifies the amount of memory to allocate (in words). num should be a little over the number of words in the dictionary. Normally you do not need to specify this option. The default is 70,000. If wnnatod fails, notifying memory shortage, retry the command with -s option. -R Converts the EUC text dictionary to a reverse-searchable binary dictionary (default). -S Converts the EUC text dictionary to a fixed-format dictionary. -U Converts the EUC text dictionary to an editable dictionary. -r Reverses the order of Kana and Kanji when converting the EUC text dictionary. -N Sets the dictionary password to "*". -n Sets the frequency password to "*". -P filename Specifies the file name of the dictionary password. -p filename Specifies the file name of the frequency password. -I Creates a system dictionary. -e Registers an entry's reading (Hiragana) as word in the binary dictionary if the reading and the word are the same (that is, the word consists of only Hiragana). With this option, you cannot convert a text dictionary to a reverse-searchable binary dictionary. -h filename Specifies the file name that contains part of speech information. ATTRIBUTES
