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  en-
       counters	an error, a message is sent to standard	error output (stderr),
       and word-list-compress exits with a non-zero return value.  Error  mes-
       sages 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 decompress-
	      ing 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.
