WORD-LIST-COMPRESS(1)		 Aspell Abbreviated User's Manual	    WORD-LIST-COMPRESS(1)

NAME
       word-list-compress - word list compressor/decompressor for GNU Aspell

SYNOPSIS
       word-list-compress c[ompress] | d[ecompress]

DESCRIPTION
       word-list-compress  compresses  or  decompresses  sorted  word  lists for use with the GNU
       Aspell spell checker.

COMMANDS
       -c, c, compress
	      compress the plain text word list read from standard input.

       -d, d, decompress
	      decompress the compressed word list read from standard input.

EXAMPLES
       Here are a few examples of how you can use word-list-compress

       word-list-compress d <wordlist.cwl >wordlist.txt
	      Decompress file wordlist.cwl to text file wordlist.txt

       word-list-compress c <wordlist.wl >wordlist.cwl 2>errors.txt
	      Compress wordlist.wl to wordlist.cwl and send any error messages	to  a  text  file
	      named errors.txt

       LC_COLLATE=C sort -u <wordlist.txt | word-list-compress c >wordlist.cwl
	      Sort  a word list, then pipe it to word-list-compress to create a compressed binary
	      wordlist.cwl file.

       word-list-compress d <words.cwl | aspell create master ./words.rws
	      Decompress a wordlist, then pipe it to aspell(1) to create a spelling list.  Please
	      check the aspell(1) info manual for proper usage and options.

TIPS
       Word-list-compress  is  best  used  with sorted word list type files.  It is not a general
       purpose compression program since the resulting files may actually increase in size.

       Word-list-compress accepts up to 255 text characters in the  range  of  {0x21...0xFF}.  If
       your  word list requires a larger character set for certain languages or longer length for
       multi-word, scientific, medical, technical or other use, then it is recommended	that  you
       compress your word list using prezip-bin(1)

DIAGNOSTICS
       Word-list-compress  normally  exits  with a return code of 0. If it encounters an error, a
       message is sent to standard error output (stderr), and  word-list-compress  exits  with	a
       non-zero return value.  Error messages are listed below:

       (display help/usage message)
	      Unknown  command	given  on the command line so word-list-compress displays a usage
	      message to standard error output.

       Corrupt Input
	      This is only for the decompression command d.  The input file is of an unknown for-
	      mat  or  the  input  file/stream is corrupted.  You may have some valid output, but
	      word-list-compress could not complete the process.  If the input	file  is  a  com-
	      pressed  wordlist but you have no output file, then it may be a newer prezip-bin(1)
	      version of compressed file, if so, try decompressing the	file  with  prezip-bin(1)
	      instead.

       Output Data Error
	      The  output  is full, write protected, or has an error and can no longer be written
	      to.
