---++XFST XFST (Xerox Finite State Tool) is a tool included with the book [[http://csli-publications.stanford.edu/site/1575864347.html][Finite State Morphology]], by Karttunen and Beesley, and information about the tool is available at http://www.fsmbook.com. From the [[http://www.xrce.xerox.com/competencies/content-analysis/fssoft/docs/fst-97/xfst97.html][XFST documentation]] at Xerox: <blockquote>XFST can read finite-state networks from binary files and compile them from regular expressions and text files. The networks can be simple networks or finite-state transducers. They can be combined by means of a variety of operations, such as union and composition. The resulting networks can be saved into a binary or a text file. The user may apply a network to strings to determine whether the string is accepted by the network or to transform it to another string if the network is a transducer. XFST provides many ways to get information about a network and to inspect and modify its structure.</blockquote> -- Main.RyanMattson - 26 Mar 2005 ---++Unicode in XFST under WinXP <b>Input</b><br /> Use Notepad for all file editing, be certain to save files as "UTF-8", not "Unicode," and not "Unicode big endian." Start XFST from the command line with the "-utf8" flag. C:\xfst -utf8 This will change the char-encoding variable from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8. If you need to switch between encodings, use the <em>set</em> command as below: xfst: set char-encoding utf-8 xfst: set char-encoding ISO-8859-1 <b>Output</b><br /> I've not had any success outputting clean UTF-8 from XFST. -- Main.DuaneBlanchard - 10 Dec 2004
