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


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


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


   -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.


   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.


   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)


   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 format 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 compressed
          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.
