       genctd - Compiles word list into ICU compact trie dictionary


       genctd  [  -h,  -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -d,
       --destdir  destination  ]  [  -i,  --icudatadir  directory  ]  -o,  --out   output-file


       genctd  reads  the  word  list  from dictionary-file and creates a compact trie dictionary
       file. Normally this data file has the .ctd extension.

       Words begin at the beginning of a line and are terminated by the first whitespace.   Lines
       that begin with whitespace are ignored.


       -h, -?, --help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print the version of genctd and exit.

       -c, --copyright
              Embeds the standard ICU copyright into the output-file.

       -v, --verbose
              Display extra informative messages during execution.

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set the destination directory of the output-file to destination.

       -i, --icudatadir directory
              Look  for  any  necessary  ICU  data  files  in  directory.   For example, the file
     must be located when ICU's data is not built as a shared  library.   The
              default ICU data directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.  Most
              configurations of ICU do not require this argument.

              The source file to read.

       -o, --out output-file
              The output data file to write.


       When the dictionary-file contains a byte order mark (BOM) at the beginning  of  the  file,
       which is the Unicode character U+FEFF, then the dictionary-file is interpreted as Unicode.
       Without the BOM, the file is interpreted in the current operating system default codepage.
       In  order to eliminate any ambiguity of the encoding for how the rule-file was written, it
       is recommended that you write this file in UTF-8 with the BOM.


       ICU_DATA  Specifies    the    directory    containing    ICU     data.     Defaults     to
                 ${prefix}/share/icu/   Some  tools in ICU depend on the presence of the
                 trailing slash. It is thus important to make sure that it is present if ICU_DATA
                 is set.
