GENBRK(1) ICU 55.1 Manual GENBRK(1)


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


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


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.


-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 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.

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.

ICU_DATA Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to
${prefix}/share/icu/55.1/. 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.
