rmligs-german - remove incorrectly used ligatures from German LaTeX documents
rmligs-german [options] FILE(s) ...
rmligs-german is a program for removing incorrectly used ligatures from LaTeX documents. This version is intended for German language texts only. Words like `Auflage´ e.g. will be changed to `Auf"|lage´ which is typographically correct. The wordlist data is based on the igerman98 dictionary. The input data may be ISO-8859-1/15 or UTF-8 encoded text. Also the German LaTeX like encoding of umlauts ("a, "u etc.) is treated correctly.
--filter, -f filter mode. This is useful for streaming. --test, -t test mode. This just shows what would be changed but nothing will be written (read-only). This does not make sense in filter mode. --interactive, -i prompt before applying changes --quiet, -q quiet operation
The German language /usr/share/doc/rmligs-german/README.ligatures file from the documentation of this program, Duden (the German´s orthography bible), nice and mostly older hand-set books
There is no sanity checking of LaTeX files; rmligs-german will happily correct words in all files - even binaries! For safety reasons there is always a .bak file created. checking latin1 text in UTF-8 locales might throw out some error messages about malformed UTF-8 but that does not matter - the file is processed correctly.
