fst-infl2 - morphological analysers SYNOPSIS
fst-infl [ options ] file [ input-file [ output-file ] ] fst-infl2 [ options ] file [ input-file [ output-file ] ] fst-infl3 [ options ] file [ input-file [ output-file ] ] OPTIONS
-t file Read an alternative transducer from file and use it if the main transducer fails to find an analysis. By iterating this option, a cascade of transducers may be tried to find an analysis. -b Print surface and analysis symbols. (fst-infl2 only) -n Print multi-character symbols without the enclosing angle brackets. (fst-infl only) -d The analyses are symbolically disambiguated by returning only analyses with a minimal number of morphemes. This option requires that morpheme boundaries are marked with the tag <X>. If no <X> tag is found in the analysis string, then the program (basically) counts the number of multi-character symbols consisting entirely of upper-case characters and uses this count for disambiguation. The lat- ter heuristic was developed for the German SMOR morphology. (This option is only available with fst-infl2 and fst-infl3.) -e n If no regular analysis is found, do robust matching and print analyses with up to n edit errors. The set of edit operations cur- rently includes replacement, insertion and deletion. Each operation has currently a fixed error weight of 1. (fst-infl2 only) -% f Disambiguates the analyses statistically and prints the most likely analyses with at least f % of the total probability mass of the analyses. The transducer weights are read from a file obtained by appending .prob to the name of the transducer file. The weight files are created with fst-train. (fst-infl2 only) -p Print the probability of each analysis. (fst-infl2 only) -c use this option if the transducer was compiled on a computer with a different endianness. If you have a transducer which was com- piled on a Sparc computer and you want to use it on a Pentium, you need to use this option. (fst-infl2 only) -q Suppress status messages. -h Print usage information. DESCRIPTION
fst-infl is a morphological analyser. The first argument is the name of a file which was generated by fst-compiler. The second argument is the name of the input file. The third argument is the output file. If the third argument is missing, output is directed to stdout. If the second argument is missing, as well, input is read from stdin. fst-infl2 is similar to fst-infl but needs a transducer in compact format (see the man pages for fst-compiler and fst-compact). fst-infl2 is implemented differently from fst-infl and usually much faster. fst-infl3 is also similar to fst-infl but needs a transducer in lowmem format (see the man pages for fst-compiler and fst-lowmem). fst- infl3 accesses the transducer on disc rather than reading it into memory. It starts very fast and needs very little memory, but is slower than fst-infl2. fst-infl reads the transducer which is stored in the argument file. Then it reads the input file line by line. Each line is analysed with the transducer and all resulting analyses are printed (see also the man pages for fst-mor). BUGS
No bugs are known so far. SEE ALSO

dctrl2xml - Debian control data to XML converter SYNOPSIS
dctrl2xml [-x | -j] [-f FILE] DESCRIPTION
dctrl2xml is a tool that converts Debian control data into an XML representation. It can be used to convert data which is normally found in debian/control, .changes, .dsc, Packages, Sources, and similar files to XML. For most fields dctrl2xml just uses the field name as element name and the field data as element content. For other fields, such as package interrelationship fields (Depends, Build-Depends, etc.) or the Files field in .changes or Sources files, dctrl2xml additionally parses their field data to represent it in a more fine-structured form. OPTIONS
For a full summary of options, run dctrl2xml --help. --version Show dctrl2xml's version number. -h, --help Show help about options. -f FILE, --file=FILE Read Debian control data from file FILE instead of standard input. FILE can be either a plain text file or a gzip, bzip2 or ZIP file. -x, --xml Output Debian control data as XML (default). -j, --json Output Debian control data as JSON. EXAMPLES
dctrl2xml -f /var/lib/dpkg/available Convert the whole dpkg(1) available file to XML and print it to standard output. This is a typical stress test for dctrl2xml. apt-cache show hello build-essential | dctrl2xml Convert the package records of the hello and build-essential packages to XML and print it to standard output. This is an example of how dctrl2xml can be used in pipes where it reads the control data from standard input. apt-cache showsrc hello | dctrl2xml | xmllint --format - This is similar to the above example, except that the xmllint(1) tool (which is in the libxml2-utils Debian package) is used to re- format and reindent dctrl2xml's output to make it more human readable and that the source package records of the hello package are used. apt-cache showsrc hello | dctrl2xml -j In this example hello's source package record is printed as JSON instead of XML.
