       sylseg-sk - segments a Slovak words in to the sylables


       sylseg-sk   [--best]   [--color]   [--dl   debug  level]  [--help]  [--ofile  <file_name>]


       The  sylabic  segmentation  is  esential  for  some  linguistic  or   speech   recognition
       applications.  Depending  on  the  language  either  rule based or statistical approach is
       beying used. For Slovak the statistical approach seems to be more suitable.

       sylseg-sk implements one of the statistical approaches for the syllabic segmentaion.  Each
       input  word  is  segmented  into  the  syllables.   The several possible segmentations are
       generated and sorted by the likelihood. If no input file is specified, the standard  input
       is  expected. If input file is used then the output is written in to the file as well. The
       filename is input filename with the extension ".syllables".

       The input output code page is ISO 8859-2.  To  use  it  with  different  CP  use  some  CP
       convertor  and  pipes.  For example to have input and output in UTF-8 use (for interactive
       use): filterm UTF8-iso2 iso2-UTF8 sylseg-sk or (for batch processing) iconv  -f  UTF-8  -t
       ISO_8859-2 | sylseg-sk | iconv -f ISO_8859-2 -t UTF-8

       Performance  of  the  syllabic segmentation depend on the used statistics.  To improve the
       quality of the segmentaion is possible to train the  better  system  with  the  sylseg-sk-
       training  tool  and  replace  the  original  file  located in /usr/share/sylseg_sk/sylseg-

       The design of  the  sylseg-sk  is  language  independent.  With  retrained  statistics  it
       theoreticaly should work for any language.


       --best Print the best result only.

              Enable color output.

       --dl 1..5
              Set  the debug level. Control the amount of displayed information The debug level 0
              displays nothing. The maximum level 5 displays full debugging report.  The  default
              debug level is 1.

       --help display a short help text

       --ofile <file_name>
              Write output also in to given file.


       Use standard input and debug level 3:
              sylseg-sk --dl 3

       Process all the from file aaa.txt and print just the best segmentation:
              sylseg-sk --best aaa.txt


       sylseg-sk returns a zero if it succeeds to process all the input words
