Lexc options:

align characters in input and output strings

if --withFlags is used, minimize the number of flags
if --withFlags and --minimizeFlags are used, rename flags (for testing)
symbols in composition (default is true).

If INFILE or OUTFILE are omitted or -, standard streams will be used The possible values for FORMAT are { sfst, openfst-tropical, openfst-log, foma, optimized-lookup-unweighted, optimized-lookup-weighted }. VALUEs recognized are {true,ON,yes} and {false,OFF,no}. Xfst variables are {flag-is-epsilon (default OFF)}.

Using weights:

LEXICON Root cat # "weight: 2" ; Define weight for a word <[dog::1]+> # ; Use weights in regular expressions

Using weights has an effect only if FORMAT is weighted, i.e. { openfst-tropical, openfst-log, optimized-lookup-weighted }.
