NAME

dictfmt_index2word - Creates a .word index file from a DICTD database .index file

SYNOPSIS

dictfmt_index2word [OPTIONS] [index_file]

DESCRIPTION

dictfmt_index2word creates a word index file on stdout for the index file given on stdin or the command line. A word index file indexes each subword from the multi-word headwords of the .index file, to the underlying .dict file. A word index file is usually named <basename>.word, but this is not mandatory as long as the proper name is used in the dictd configuration file.

OPTIONS

--help
displays a usage message and exits
--locale locale
use locale for sorting the .word file. If this option is omitted, the default locale "C" is used.
index_file
the .index file to be converted.
