NAME

       hfst-compose - =Compose two transducers

SYNOPSIS

       hfst-compose [OPTIONS...] [INFILE1 [INFILE2]]

DESCRIPTION

       Compose two transducers

   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:
       -1, --input1=INFILE1
              Read first input transducer from INFILE1

       -2, --input2=INFILE2
              Read second input transducer from INFILE2

       -C, --do-not-convert
              Do not allow transducers to be converted into the same type

       -o, --output=OUTFILE
              Write results to OUTFILE

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

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

   Harmonization:
       -H, --do-not-harmonize Do not harmonize symbols.

       -F, --harmonize-flags
              Harmonize flag diacritics.

       If  OUTFILE,  or either INFILE1 or INFILE2 is missing or -, standard streams will be used.
       INFILE1, INFILE2, or both, must be specified.  Format  of  result  depends  on  format  of
       INFILE1 and INFILE2; both should have the same format.

       The  operation  is applied pairwise for INFILE1 and INFILE2 that must have the same number
       of transducers.  If INFILE2 has only one transducer, the operation  is  applied  for  each
       transducer in INFILE1 keeping the second transducer constant.

       Xfst  variables  are  {flag-is-epsilon (default OFF)}.  VALUE can be one of the following:
       [true|false], [yes|no] or [ON|OFF], false being the default.

EXAMPLES

       hfst-compose -o cat2dog.hfst cat2mouse.hfst mouse2dog.hfst
              composes two automata
