NAME
prep - prepare text for statistical processing
SYNOPSIS
prep [ -diop ] file ...
DESCRIPTION
Prep reads each file in sequence and writes it on the standard output, one `word' to a line. A word is a string of alphabetic characters and imbedded apostrophes, delimited by space or punctuation. Hyphented words are broken apart; hyphens at the end of lines are removed and the hyphenated parts are joined. Strings of digits are discarded. The following option letters may appear in any order: -d Print the word number (in the input stream) with each word. -i Take the next file as an `ignore' file. These words will not appear in the output. (They will be counted, for purposes of the -d count.) -o Take the next file as an `only' file. Only these words will appear in the output. (All other words will also be counted for the -d count.) -p Include punctuation marks (single nonalphanumeric characters) as separate output lines. The punctuation marks are not counted for the -d count. Ignore and only files contain words, one per line.
