       hfst-lexc [OPTIONS...] [INFILE1...]]


       Compile lexc files into transducer

   Common options:
       -h, --help
              Print help message

       -V, --version
              Print version info

       -v, --verbose
              Print verbosely while processing

       -q, --quiet
              Only print fatal erros and requested output

       -s, --silent
              Alias of --quiet

   Input/Output options:
       -f, --format=FORMAT
              compile into FORMAT transducer

       -o, --output=OUTFILE
              write result into OUTFILE

   Lexc options:
       -A, --alignStrings
              align characters in input and output strings

       -E, --encode-weights
              encode weights when minimizing (default is false)

       -F, --withFlags
              use flags to hyperminimize result

       -M, --minimizeFlags
              if --withFlags is used, minimize the number of flags

       -R, --renameFlags
              if --withFlags and --minimizeFlags are used, rename flags (for testing)

       -x, --xerox-composition=VALUE Whether flag diacritics are treated as ordinary
              symbols in composition (default is true).

       -X, --xfst=VARIABLE
              toggle xfst compatibility option VARIABLE.

       -W, --Werror
              treat warnings as errors

       If  INFILE  or OUTFILE are omitted or -, standard streams will be used The possible values
       for FORMAT are { sfst, openfst-tropical, openfst-log,  foma,  optimized-lookup-unweighted,
       optimized-lookup-weighted  }.   VALUEs  recognized  are  {true,ON,yes} and {false,OFF,no}.
       Xfst variables are {flag-is-epsilon (default OFF)}.


       hfst-lexc -o cat.hfst cat.lexc
              Compile single-file lexicon

       hfst-lexc -o L.hfst Root.lexc 2.lexc 3.lexc
              Compile multi-file lexicon

   Using weights:
              LEXICON Root cat # "weight: 2" ;    Define  weight  for  a  word  <[dog::1]+>  #  ;
              Use weights in regular expressions

       Using  weights  has  an  effect  only  if  FORMAT  is  weighted, i.e.  { openfst-tropical,
       openfst-log, optimized-lookup-weighted }.
