       patgen - generate patterns for TeX hyphenation

       patgen dictionary_file pattern_file log_file translate_file

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The patgen program reads the dictionary_file and  produces  the	pattern_file,  writing	a
       transcript  of  its actions on the log_file.  The dictionary_file should contain a list of
       hyphenated words and previously-generated patterns.

       The patterns thus generated can be read by initex for use  in  hyphenating  words.  For	a
       (very)  long  example  of patgen's output, see $TEXMFMAIN/generic/hyphen/hyphen.tex, which
       contains the patterns TeX uses for English.  At some sites,  patterns  for  several  other
       languages  may  be  available, and the local tex programs may have them preloaded; consult
       your Local Guide or your system administrator for details.

       All filenames must be complete; no adding of default extensions or path searching is done.

	   Patterns for English.

       Frank  Liang wrote the first version of this program.  Peter Breitenlohner made a substan-
       tial revision in 1991 for TeX 3.  The first version was published as the appendix  to  the
       TeXware	technical  report,  available from the TeX Users Group. Howard Trickey originally
       ported it to Unix.
