NAME

       hfst-lookup - =perform transducer lookup (apply)

SYNOPSIS

       hfst-lookup [OPTIONS...] [INFILE]

DESCRIPTION

       perform  transducer  lookup  (apply)  NOTE:  hfst-lookup does lookup from left to right as
       opposed to xfst and foma

              lookup which is carried out from right to left. In order to do lookup in a  similar
              way as xfst and foma, use 'hfst-flookup' instead.

   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:
       -i, --input=INFILE
              Read input transducer from INFILE

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

       -p, --pipe-mode[=STREAM] Control input and output streams

   Lookup options:
       -I, --input-strings=SFILE
              Read lookup strings from SFILE

       -O, --output-format=OFORMAT
              Use OFORMAT printing results sets

       -e, --epsilon-format=EPS
              Print epsilon as EPS

       -F, --input-format=IFORMAT
              Use IFORMAT parsing input

       -x, --statistics
              Print statistics

       -X, --xfst=VARIABLE
              Toggle xfst VARIABLE

       -c, --cycles=INT
              How  many  times  to  follow  input  epsilon  cycles (only for non-lookup-optimized
              transducers)

       -n, --max-number=INT
              Maximum number of  results  printed  for  each  input  (only  for  lookup-optimized
              transducers)

       -b, --beam=B
              Output only analyses whose weight is within B from the best analysis

       -t, --time-cutoff=S
              Limit  search  after  having  used  S  seconds per input (only for lookup-optimized
              transducers)

       -C, --cascade=CASCADE
              How multiple transducers in input are handled

       -P, --progress
              Show neat progress bar if possible

       If OUTFILE or INFILE is missing or -, standard streams will be  used.   Format  of  result
       depends  on  format  of  INFILE OFORMAT is one of {xerox,cg,apertium}, xerox being default
       IFORMAT is one of {text,spaced,apertium}, default being text, unless OFORMAT  is  apertium
       VARIABLEs        relevant        to       lookup       are       {print-pairs,print-space,
       quote-special,show-flags,obey-flags} Input epsilon cycles are followed  by  default  INT=5
       times.  Epsilon is printed by default as an empty string.  B must be a non-negative float.
       S must be a non-negative float. The default, 0.0,  indicates  no  cutoff.   If  the  input
       contains several transducers, a set containing results from all transducers is printed for
       each input string.

       CASCADE must be one of { union, priority-union, composition }.  If not specified, defaults
       to {union}.

       STREAM can be { input, output, both }. If not given, defaults to {both}.  If input file is
       not specified with -I, input is read interactively line by line  from  the  user.  If  you
       redirect  input  from  a  file,  use  --pipe-mode=input.  --pipe-mode=output is ignored on
       non-windows platforms.

   Todo:
              Support --xfst=obey-flags  for  optimized  lookup  format.   Support  --cycles  for
              optimized lookup format.

   Known bugs:
              'quote-special' quotes spaces that come from 'print-space'
