Mkey manual

Name

Mkey — Build an index of keys from files

Synopsis

mkey [-sw] [-c name] [-f name] [-i chars] [-kn] [-ln] [-nm] file [file...]

Description

Mkey reads its input from the file names given as arguments, and, if there is no arguments, it reads from the standart input. It assumes that blank lines in the input delimit separate items for each of which a different line of keys should be generated. The lines of keys are written on the standard output. Keys are any alphanumeric string in the input not among the most frequent words in English and not entirely numeric (except that all-numeric strings are acceptable if they are between 1900 and 1999). In the output, keys are translated to lower case, and truncated to six characters in length; any associated punctuation is removed.

The following flags arguments are recognized by mkey.

Files

@BINDIR@/mkey Executable. @LIBDIR@/eign List of frequent english words.
