NAME

       cdtoa - To convert the binary format of a dictionary back to
               text format.


SYNOPSIS

       cdtoa  [-n] [-s] [-z] [-e] [-E] infilename
              [-h cixingfile ]  [ usagefreqfile ]


DEFAULT PATH

       /usr/local/bin/cWnn4/cdtoa


DESCRIPTION

       To convert the binary format of the dictionary to text
       format, and output to standard output(stdout).

       infilename is the name of the input binary format
       dictionary.

       The output may be piped into a file by using the ">"
       command.  For example,
               cdtoa  dict.dic  >  dict.u
       "dict.u"   here  is  the  output  text  format  dictionary,  while  the
       "dict.dic" is the input binary format dictionary.

       usagefreqfile may indicate more than one  user  usage  frequency  files
       (for  a  particular  user).   These usage frequency information will be
       reflected in the text format dictionary created.


OPTIONS

       -s     To order the entries in text dictionary according to  Pinyin  or
              Zhuyin.

       -n     To attach sequence numbers to the output.

       -z     To convert the binary format back to text format in Zhuyin.
              (Note: default is Pinyin)

       -e     If the Hanzi inside the text dictionary contains characters such
              as space and tab, they will  be  compacted  to  special  format.
              (Default)

       -E     If the Hanzi inside the text dictionary contains characters such
              as space and tab, they will NOT be compacted to special  format.

       -h     cixingfile
              To specify the Cixing definition file.


NOTE

       1.     The parts in [ ] are options.  They may be omitted.

       2.     The Pinyin and Zhuyin dictionary has the same format.

       3.     The  default  conversion  result  of  the  text dictionary is in
              Pinyin.
