1. Introduction

3. Details

The package contains other files that were used for creation of the dictionary. Their description will be given in the following paragraphs.

The original wordlist is distributed in a format intended for aspell version 6.x. It will not work with version 5.x. The wordlist is compressed and must be first converted to a plain text file using the preunzip program. It seems that there is a bug in this program. Three nonsense lines are appended to the end of the text file. These lines must be deleted. The last correct word is ह्रास (hraas).

I do not like that the original wordlist uses separate nukta character even with consonants existing in Unicode (such as ज़ = za). Such characters were converted by cnv.pl issuing the command

./cnv.pl <hi.wl >hicnv.wl

File hi.hints contains the list of hints for Hindi.

Conversion to the format suitable for editors XMLmind and <oXygen/> was done by Dictionary Builder. The following commands were used:

/path/to/dictbuilder -cs UTF-8 -hints hi.hints hicnv.wl -o hi/hi.cdi
jar cvf hi.dar hi/*
