fst-infl2-daemon - morphological analysers

**fst-infl2-daemon [ options ]** *<socket-no>* *file*
**-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 latter 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
currently 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
compiled 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.

*fst-infl2-daemon* is similar to

*fst-infl2* but but reads and writes
from/to a socket.

No bugs are known so far.
