GENBRK(1)                       ICU 60.1 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
              example, 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
              configurations 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
       recommended that you write this file in UTF-8 with the BOM.

       ICU_DATA  Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to
                 ${prefix}/share/icu/60.1/.  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.
