       voikkospell - test program for Voikko spell checker


       voikkospell [options]


       voikkospell  is  a  test program for spell checking functionality in libvoikko, library of
       Finnish language tools.  It reads words from stdin (one word on a line) and print them  to
       stdout, adding "C: " in front of correct words and "W: " in front of incorrect words.

       Common options of different Voikko test programs are listed in COMMON OPTIONS.


       -m     Prints morphological analysis info (A:) for recognized words.

       -t     Prints only "C" or "W" instead of typical full output.

       -tt    Prints only misspelled words.

       -s     Prints suggestions (S:) for incorrectly spelled words.

       -cn    Set  cache  size  parameter to n.  -1 disables the cache and 0 is the default.  For
              checking large amounts of unsorted text you may want to set n to 5  to  get  better

       -j n   Use  n  threads  for  spell checking. When more than one thread is used checking is
              performed using large internal buffers which is why this mode should only  be  used
              for batch processing.

       -xc    Like  voikkospell  -s  but  output  is printed on one line separated by character c
              without "C", "W" or "S" in front of the words.  If  c  is  not  defined  words  are
              separated by space and suggestions that have spaces in them are not printed.

       -l     Prints  a list of available dictionary variants and exits. The first variant is the
              default to be used when no specific variant has been requested.





              Set the value of the specified boolean option.  n can be  either  0  (false)  or  1


       -p directory
              (voikkospell,  voikkohyphenate,  voikkogc)  Look from directory before the standard
              locations when searching for dictionary files.

       -d variant
              (voikkospell, voikkohyphenate, voikkogc) Use dictionary variant variant instead  of
              the  default  dictionary  variant.  The  variant  must  be  represented as a BCP 47
              language tag.

              (voikkospell, voikkohyphenate)

              (voikkospell, voikkohyphenate)
              Set the value of the specified boolean option.  n can be  either  0  (false)  or  1

       -h, --help
              Print a help message and exit.

              Print version numbers for libvoikko and the test tool.
