genbrk(1)                       ICU 4.8 Manual                       genbrk(1)




NAME

       genbrk  -  Compiles  ICU break iteration rules source files into binary
       data files


SYNOPSIS

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


DESCRIPTION

       genbrk reads the break (boundary) rule source code from  rule-file  and
       creates  a  break  iteration data file. Normally this data file has the
       .brk extension.

       The details of the rule syntax can be found in ICU's User Guide.


OPTIONS

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

       -V, --version
              Print the version of genbrk 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 exam-
              ple, the file pnames.icu 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 configura-
              tions of ICU do not require this argument.

       -r, --rules rule-file
              The source file to read.

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


CAVEATS

       When the rule-file contains a byte order mark (BOM) at the beginning of
       the file, which is the Unicode character U+FEFF, then the rule-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 rec-
       ommended that you write this file in UTF-8 with the BOM.


ENVIRONMENT

       ICU_DATA  Specifies the directory  containing  ICU  data.  Defaults  to
                 ${prefix}/share/icu/4.8/.   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.
